Anyone know where to find the chrome hubcaps for a 7016h? Also, how can i rig up the lights for the light pods? are the bulbs still availible? What about taking the inserts out, and putting small rectangular aftermarket fog lights for cars?

I have been told that the bulbs are still available for the lights. Another person said if you go to a Truck supply store they have LED style lights they have lights that can be made to fit in you pods and look nearly factory. I don't have specifics on them though. Ebay would be a good spot for hubcaps. I also heard that several Golf Cart supply sites have hubcaps that will fit. I have been looking for them for my Homelite T-16 H also. Good luck with your search. Roger

This is what i am thinking light wise... Led fog lights turned upwards and inserted into the pods.

 

Here are the style of lights i am thinking of...

Well I made mine back before LED's were worth a tinkers dam. I rewire the socket to where both posts inside the socket were (+) ( right now one is positive and the other is a ground ) and I used 1156 bulbs (single contact) bulbs backed up with reflectors made from the bottom of aluminum coke cans. It worked pretty well until I got this new engine with an anemic light circuit. I am now looking for 1156 reflector LEDs. They are pricy but really save the amperage. 1157 bulbs are double pole but the bayonet lugs on the bulb will not match your original sockets. 713006d11540fd060a5850148eef7916_zpse9fa

I know, totally off topic, but whenever you post a pic I've been meaning to tell you, that really is a nice looking tractor. :thumbs:

I found some that will fit perfectly. 175 lumen, 2 on each side so 350 lumen on each side. These are PERFECT! and only $19.95 a piece!

Thanks! She is my baby. The 5 year old refresh is starting to get a little long in the tooth but she still looks pretty good.

I remember seeing a video, I think it was a guy that calls himself ZippoVarga on youtube, he has a video of installing lights that were designed for under kitchen cabinets. The lights look almost identical and he shows the modifications needed to install them. Hope this helps.
