I switched my WD over to 12 volt and noticed when I took the 2 headlights apart that I had 2 completely different styles. One fixture uses a sealed beam headlamp and the other uses a replaceable bulb with a cover lens. I"de like to go with the sealed beam style and was wondering if anyone had an extra they would part with or could tell me what years they used the sealed beam type? Thanks, Mark

Had same thing on the WD I bought 10 years ago. Some previous owner over the 50 years changed one light to sealed beam style. Since I was also changing to 12 volt, originality didn't matter. Picked up a pair of black rubber/plastic sealed beam lights at Wally World for 10 bucks each. I case someone in the future wanted to convert back to 6 volt, I saved all the replaced parts, generator, light switch, lights, etc, & sent them along when I sold it.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Allis, John Deere, and Farmalls all used the same Delco Guide headlamps with some very minor differences. The lens, reflectors, and bulbs are all the same. No doubt there IS a sealed beam that will fit in the housing, but that sealed beam would not have been available when the tractors were built.

The sealed beam you have should have a part number on it somewhere. If you can find that part number, you should be able to find a replacement. Keep us posted, we might ALL want to do the same thing.

Here are a couple of photos of the headlights in question. The outsides are the same but you can see the 4 notches in the rim of the sealed beam unit. The sealed beam is a GE4511 6volt. I found a 12 volt with the same dimensions, but I don't have it handy to get the nimber off it. Mark

Neither the WC, WD, or WD45 had sealed beam headlights, they used the replacable bulb style with a reflector and lense.

Randy, Is there another tractor headlight assembly that looks identical to the one used on the WD that had the sealed beams? The reason I ask is that the sealed beam fits perfectly in the one fixture but not the other and it dosen't appear that the socket was ever in the sealed beam fixture. Mark
