Red Dot Jewel Lens

Postby kaleb58loboy » Thu May 23, 2019 1:55 pm

Hello
My cub has a red dot jewel light inside the rear worklight,
I converted to a 12 volt system
and need to know by changing the small #51 6 volt bulb to a small #53 bulb 12 volt bulb,
will the 12 volt bulb melt the plastic lens?

The number 53 was originally called out for 12 volt versions of the combo light. It and the #51 are both rated 1 candle power. You should be OK with the #53.

since it is 12v I would consider LED

I have used them in rear light on that application.

I agree. Should be cooler besides being brighter, drawing less amps, forgiving of colder temps and lasting a lot longer.
