Maybe seeing installation instructions will help if disassembly is needed.

most of the light you get don't have any bolts or maybe one toggle left. but this was the whole miglia. it had one 50 watt flood and one fog bulb in it for white and the two reds look to be coated ones. but they swapped out OK.

now one more question for those of you that run them. the down tilt and the reds have the notch for bulb position so that the patter is vertical. but the up tilted one will only go in horizontal. if you put it vertical with the tilt it will ground out on the shaft. do you remember what patter your lights were in?
Ed, you have to "follow" the notches. Many, many years ago I had a Federal guy explain to me why they were set up that way, but I'll be damned if I can remember why. I will promise to "ponder" on it, see if I can shake it loose in my old memory.

thanks Jack for the instructions. a nice addition to that file. the lights are fairly simple to get into and make repairs to but the one bulb out of the pattern intrigued me.

her is a little video of it sitting up top of the 58. the close confines of the garage show up the pattern rather will. one can see why they were not a common light out here the up tilt would be waste light in the open country
