Where does one buy bulbs for 6 volt, dual beam system. Regular parts shops only carry 12 volt bulbs.

John,

If you can not find them at an auto parts store. try an electrical distribution supply house. GE, Sylvania still make a wide variety of these lamps and if they don't stock them they can order them for you. If they have to order them you will most likely have to order them in a package of 10 which is the minimum size order GE and Sylvain(now called Osram) will ship in.

My second suggestion is to try the swap meets. They are quite common and in fact just this weekend a picked up about dozen or so dual element 6 volt lamps for spares. Let me know how you make out and if you can not find them I can get you some.

CORDially,

Al Hatch

This fellow was recommended by one of the model t guys from the MTFCI. I know it wouldn't be original but if your's is a driver this is apparently the way to go.

Can't speak from personal experience however. Not quite there yet!!!
