Headlights

Recommended Posts

MDB
I have been wanting to put lights on some of the tractors but with the cost of OEM lights did not do much about it. Last week I went down to the local combine salvage yard and here is what I found.

Guide headlights,

Found these in the steel pile,

Some heating, bending, cutting, a couple of holes and here is the bracket. The one on the left is home made, the one on the right is OEM

Here is the finished product on the HB-112 that I got from Rokon.

Mike, Very good job making the bracket. I have a couple of lights that I have veen thinking of mounting on my 61 Wards. They are much thinner than yours. Seems the vertical exhaust is in the way. I really don't want to change the exhaust. Guess I'll put that off till I come up with a good work-around idea.

Looks very good...I kinda wish I had kept some of the lights I had picked up over the last few years...These cheap aftermarket walmart lights I have don't seem to stay put with the vibrations from my trators...I ever get my hands on more of those guide lights they wont be ebayed..

Nice job! What did you use for replacement switches? I can't seem to find the right ones. On the originals the part where the electrical connections are were small and low. All I find now for replacements have a large plastic piece that sticks out about 1/2 inch, getting in the way of the bulb and wires.

I discovered AC combine lights ans gauges a few years ago while restoreing my D-17(hence my namesake). Besides a set of good working headlights, I have one of the few pre 60's D-series tractors with coloured faceplates that still say Allis-Chalmers. Something that is absolutely NOL. Good find, and good job.

MazdaManiac, Here is a print of the head light bracket. The bottom mounting hole has a spherical slot about 3/4 inches, in the shape of a smiley face. Material is a 1/4" thick. You will have to figure you own bend allowance. I have not computed it yet. [img]/club2/attach/Ryan/3212v%20%20Head%20Light%20Bracket.jpg[/img]

Looked at various at Wally world today. Though kinda 'cute' them little driving light just don't seem like they would look right on a B-112. Is the 55 watts too much for the S/G. NAPA man in Delta who has black rubber farm equipment lights for 13 bucks each said the Holgen's won't hold up to the vibration as well. Rod H, you should be able to mount your lights on the 61 through the hinge hole like mine on the 725. It works real good and looks good. If you need I'll post a pic of it.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
