My head lights on my 1923 were flickering and now will not come on
In years past, I saw a MTFCA post showing the addition of a soldered grounding wire to the lamp socket ? (from memory)
I goggled MTFCA headlight repair and got 4500 responses. Anyone remember the correct posting? It had pictures of where to connect the new additional grounding wire I checked about 100 k posts with no luck
I ordered two new headlamp light sockets from Snyders double contact as my 12 volt bulbs are double contact Just to make sure that is not the problem and new bulbs
Cutting the wires going to the lamp sockets, I see I have power on only one of the two wires so I will track that down tomorrow as I assume one is for low and one for high beam
Any suggestions on grounding the lights besides removing them from the fender and getting a good ground there (which I will do if necessary) is appreciated
Googled and found your 2010 post #1 up with photo of how to add an additional ground if needed.
Good lights need all parts clean from paint in at least one spot, headlamp post, fender iron, and bulb socket. I prefer to use original Ford parts for the headlamps.
WOW thanks senility is getting frightening that is why I no longer fly ! Might forget where i am It was my own Post 4 years ago !! This is the picture I was thinking of !!
What do you need a ground for?
: ^ )
Maybe better to media blast the headlight bucket especially where it rivits to the bracket.... then tighten rivits or spot weld.
