Hi What is the fix for old headlights that have a slight wobble.I have one apart cant seem to fix the wobble. any help appreciated 

I've had the best luck using solder from the inside... but you have to remove wiring and everything to do a good job.

Thank you Kent Should I sand the metal and use flux before soldering.

Yes to both for the best job.  You might be able to get by with just using flux-core after cleaning/sanding, but using flux first will improve the results.

Just remember; once you use JB Weld the solder option is off the table. Good luck with your repair.

Yes.  One of the best things about using solder is just heat it up and pour it out, to "remove the evidence
or start all over again...

What Causes the lights to do this in the first place? My Landlord's wobble like crazy. I suppose I too will try either welding or soldering them.

Being forcibly moved, either by bumping something such as bushes with the light or trying to adjust them...  It breaks the housing loose from the mounting stud.

      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
