Got a new lens, but it didn't come with a bulb or socket, this a part store item or is it something special I'm looking for?

No spade connector on my alternator. Just the battery lug.

Not a rubber plug next to the battery lug that covers the spade lugs?

Like I said, tractor has the 12v conversion done to it, so not really worried about 'original' just want functional here.

if the alt has a big battery lug, and then two spade terminals beside the battery lug......

run a wire from the spade lug closest to the battery lug back to a "two wire light socket,,,, to one of the wires and then the other wire on the socket going to the "on" side of the ignition switch.

The two wire socket is still availible for a ge53 bulb, but the connector will not let the bulb go to ground, but too the 2nd wire. Often refered to as a oil pressure socket or a generator light socket for older cars.. If you dont mind changing to a t10 bulb, you can get the sockets much cheaper.

On a side note, my tractor has had a 12v conversion done to it, and has a Single Wire Alternator on it.

How would I make this light come on if the alternator stops charging?

My thoughts were to find an automotive relay that is Normally closed that will open when it has 12vdc applied.

The correct bulb can be bought at any parts store.
On the other hand; The bulb socket is part of the wiring harness and is no longer serviced by New Holland.

The only place you can get the correct bulb socket (that I know of) is to cut it out of the wiring of a junk yard tractor.

All I can find on the CNH diagram is #2 and thats just the lens and nut, doesn't show the actual bulb assembly.

IIRC (haven't checked), the lamp assembly is part of the wiring harness.

Again, probably NLS.

If you just need it to work, then something can be rigged up with a 168 type lamp. Lense will look correct, but if the sphincter police look under the dash you will loose originality points... GottA watch those annually retentive originality in specters ya know!

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
