I am trying to mount head lights on my B but am having a hard time finding the proper brackets to mount them. A half inch bolt fits in there perfect but then I have run the wire down and under the hood and it looks like hell. How do they mount the head light's on this tractor? I am have having a problem trying to find a 1/2 inch pipe that is thick enough to thread to use for this application. Thanks for you help

Greg

Dear Greg;

It sounds like you need some original headlights! The originals were made by the Guide Company, and had a hollow, threaded tube on the side of the light that went through the hole in the hood and grille, which the wire came through, and the fastening nut screwed on from under the hood on the inside. You can find repros or originals at tractor shows. If the tractor has been converted to 12v, you can take the 6v bulbs out and install 12v fog light bulbs of around 110 candlepower. They shine as bright as sealed beams. Hope this helps.

i bought an aftermarket set of lights at NAPA. I took a 1/2 inch bolt about 1 inch long and drilled a 1/8 inch hole thru the center of it. I used the 1/2 inch bolt to hold the sheetmetal "C" bracket to the hood. The bracket has two holes in the "leg" of the "C" and a small bolt, maybe 3/16 holdes the plastic light case to the "C" bracket. then i shoved the wire down thru the 1/2 inch bolt and end up inside the hood. I grounded the headlight second wire to the 3/16 bolt on the C bracket.

ORIGINAL HEADLIGHTS HAD THE WIRE COMING THRU THE 1/2" BOLT. THE WIRE IS PUSHED THRU THE 1/2" HOLE INTO THE RADIATOR SHROUD AND THE LIGHT IS SCREWED INTO THE 1/2' HOLE. [THERE IS A LOCK NUT ON THE 1/2" BOLT TO LOCK THE LIGHT AND KEEP IT FROM TURNING] THE WIRE GETS ATTACHED TO A INSULATED STUD ON THE RADIATOR SHROUD. NO BRACKETS NEEDED. BOB
