Back when I was a kid in the "good ole days" we had things like that on a low priority.

When things got back up and we had to run the 2 N at night also, it always seemed like the guages were where they were sposed to be come day light.

Yep times have changed, my aftermarket 8N guages have internal lights.

Gary..... ...gott weak eyes eh? (grin)

Welp, the cyclops grilled NAA Jubilee's (1953-57) had an "armored" covered shaded dashlite (about 1"dia x 1"hi) in the center of a 4-gauge cluster. p/n: FAA-13771-A, 6-volts, about $25. You would need TWO because yer 8N gauges are NOT CLUSTERED.

But remember, the 8N came from the factory with NO LITES. Dealers installed them for "extra profit." An NO TWO dealer mechanics installed them the same way.

It would be really trivial for an experienced shadetree mechanic to install dashlites ennywharr ya want. Just pick some sort of "shaded" lamp style so the lites don't shine in yer eyes. You might even find some modern LED lites like they use in those pimped-up "rice-rockets".

I recently picked up a small LED lite that has a "clippie" that fits on the bill of a "gimmie" baseball hat. Of course that would mean wearing yer cap "squared away", instead of shading yer redneck like they do in the ghetto. (grin)

And then there is those heavy framed glasses with twin battery operated flashlites on the corners..... ..eagle...er...owl-eyed Dell

The Jubilee/NAA was manufactured from '53 to '54, not '53 to '57. The hundred series was manufactured from '55 thru '57.

 Differences between Jubilee/NAA 600 Series in reply to uh . . . Dell (WA), 11-14-2006 08:11:49  
Dell, you write:

>>the difference between 1953 Jubilee's and 1957 600's is???..... hood medallion and decals???..... ..<<

Besides the medallion and decals, the main differences between the Jubilee/NAA and the 600 is the hydraulic lift was improved and the rear axles were redesigned as one piece to eliminate the separate axle and hub which was used on both the 8N and NAA. The vane type hydraulic pump on the Jubilee/NAA was replaced by a piston type pump on the 600. Also, the Jubilee/NAA had a tool box in the left running board. The 600 has a toolbox in back of the right running board.

FWIW,
John

Dell,

Your information about the light is good. Just pointing out that you had the wrong years that the Jubilee/NAA was manufactured.

You write:
>>the cyclops grilled NAA Jubilee's (1953-57) had an "armored" covered shaded dashlite<<

It's 1953-54. Should have included the 100 series in your statement then it would have been good to go. I'm not sweat'n the small stuff but if a guy reads this and owns a Jubilee, he may think they were produced many years.

...and I hope you're not calling me "sphincterly challenged".

John

John..... ..the p/n: FAA-13771-A, 6-volts, lamp assy is listed to fit 1953-57.

Most neubie 8N-tractor owners wouldn't be cognizant enuff to tell the difference between a Jubbie and enny 100's series. The ALL have the same round cyclops grill medallion.

"...and I hope you're not calling me "sphincterly challenged"..... .well, I sure ain't the one being "nitt-pickie"..... ...respectfully, Dell

True, but you're missing the point. You write:

Disagree, the NAA/Jubilee was produced in '53 & '54.

Have a good one,
John

You have to replace your gauges with ones that have back lights. I want to do the same thing. Just shut her down I was out well after dark.

If you have the optional cigarette lighter you can pick up a cheap map light that will plug in. Auto zone type places carry ones on 8" flex extensions that may do what you need.

do you need to see your gauges? you can get amp.& oil gauges with lights built in them.

I installed new internally lit gauges and they work fine...but .... one dang thing after another.... now they're too bright! Now I gotta install a rheostat or an automotive type headlamp switch with a built-in rheostat... (Wonder where it'll all stop.... when I have to install a lighted mirror on the back of the sun-visor???) ;

Look into marine grade lights. They come in different colors to help dim them.
