Rear combo light

Postby goxu1 » Fri Jan 15, 2021 6:18 am

Just wondering if the repro combo work light bolts up to the battery box on the original brackets , or do I need extra bits?

I haven't heard of anyone having trouble mounting an aftermarket combo light. Would assume if it's for a Cub, then the light bracket would mate up to the original battery box bracket.

But then again, there I go "assuming" again... Perhaps someone else has had issues and will voice them.

The after market red combo light that I found bolts to the back of the battery box uses the same mounting bracket as the original.

Depends, I’ve seen repos of that come with the plastic red lens. The originals had glass lens and don’t come up for sale too often.

Hi,
I don't think IH used the style of rear light in your pic above on a Cub in 1957.

Below is a page from the 1955 Cub operator's manual showing the combination rear light, the red light is built into the unit.

Below is a page from the Cub parts manual showing the light.

TM Tractor sells one almost the same, here is their listing below.

If you wanted, you could put on one with the more modern sealed beam unit in it, for the white light.

If you have an existing front headlight, you can convert it to a rear light. There are several threads in the How To Forum on rear lights that may help:

Lots of good info in the How To Forum... :wink:

Plowboy equipment sold 6 volt after market rear combo lights for around $75.00 a few years back.
