1951 falcon 54 Headlight

Post  chris brown on Mon Aug 01, 2016 7:10 pm

Having trouble sourcing a replacement Headlight reflector/ Sealed beam unit.
There all either 5 1/2" or 7".
Mine is 6".   Does anyone know of a supplier or a suitable substitute.
Many Thanks
Chris B

headlight

Yes the 1951 was the last year of the shorter 6" Lucas headlight, they were replaced with the longer shell with the Lucas 575 headlight ( 5 3/4") in 1952

Thank you John H... Think I've sourced a replacement 6" unit with FEKED.
Do you know what the bottom retaining arrangement looks like?
There's a hole in the bottom of the Headlight rim and a Slot at Right Angle just inboard in the Headlght shell. I can feel a Bodge coming on but have'nt worked it out yet.!!
Cheers   Chris

rim retaining clip

Post  piston 197 on Tue Aug 02, 2016 5:22 pm

There is a "W" shaped spring and a cast pull toggle usually, the toggle locates in the hole in the rim.
see Ebay item No 142013305412 from India, or if gone put "Lucas rim retaining clip" into Ebay search, there are at least half a dozen on there at the moment
