There is no wire though. Can I just clamp the (-) on the case and touch the positive clip to the two leads on the bottom of the light? Also, do you want to just meet at my house before heading up to Hartford? I can pick Mark up first (unless he got another ride) then meet here at say 12:30?

Sealed beams have at least two terminals, and are connected either way as far as ground and powered. Bulbs are have a brass case and one or two lead tipped terminal in the center. The brass is equipment ground and the center is powered supplied. Neither beam or bulb is polarity sensitive.
