Need help identifying this Victor 61 carbide tail light. Who ever had it must have ran like crazy around the car to light all three.lightlight

Not really, you just open all three doors to prevent gas build up. Then light the one closest first. Really you want the lines to be purged of any oxygen

Jim; I hope you use it! I've wanted to find one of those! I always thought they'd be a great accessory for driving at night using.

When you light it pinch the gas hose and blow out the extra gas in the body of the light to get rid of any build up.

Good luck!

Gary, the tail light is for sale. Make me a fair offer.

Hi Jim. Just sent you a PM.

Jim,

It's actually a Victor 461. I have used the one I have on my '14 in place of a John Brown 115. Here is one lit up.



The top is open but you can see the 1/4 cubic foot burner lit. I think the John Brown 115 is better because it has the blue light on the driver's side and it is as bright as the acetylene.



I run a Prest-O-Lite so the headlights and tail light are easily lit in about sixty seconds.

Ken in Texas
