Can anyone advise a part number or place to buy clear/chrome indicator bulbs that still flash orange? I have clear indicator lenses but I don't want orange tinted bulbs in them

This type of thing? loads on eBay
12v 21watt from memory but could be completely wrong so check your bulb before ordering any.

That's interesting - heard about these on another thread - but not seen them before.

However, when looking at the e-bay listing Sim provided I came across this sketch suggesting the pins are offset at 90 degrees, rather than at the usual 180 degrees for 'ordinary' indicator bulbs

Chrome indicator bulbs Amber%20581..........

I guess there will be chrome/orange bulbs with the correct pin configuration .... or am I showing my ignorance as the 90 degree pin offset may be something 'peculiar' to bulbs for 'clear' lenses.

Happy to be educated on this (as it could be useful in the future)

Cheers Sim   Chrome indicator bulbs 256401 .... looks like we are both learning here !

I like the sales blurb :-

(OPPOSITE Pins)

(Ref-382/343)







Can The Ugly 'FRIED EGG' Effect In Indicators Be Remedied?


This Is Caused By Amber Bulbs Behind Clear Lenses.


The Answer Is SILVATEC.


Silvatec Bulbs Have A Futuristic Polished Chrome Appearance, But Shine Amber,

I also note these units are a little more expensive than some of the others !

I'll bet these could be bought over the counter from most motor factors?, where you could see what you're getting before handing over any candy.

Yep, I would agree .... any decent motor factors shop will probably have them.

Sim, I wonder if you might use Alan Quine's in Unsworth ? ... they are not as good as they used to be as I think they have become part of a larger chain - but they are still pretty good for popular stuff. They also stock some bike stuff.

Hi,
not sure about exactly those bulbs, but I bought some "chrome" plated indicator bulbs, and they sure _looked_ good, but were _very_ dim while lit, so dim, that I was not able to see if the indicator was on during the daylight ! So ended up throwing them to garbage.

After that I bought these, which were good, bright and showing almost none of the "egging":
http://www.eurocarparts.com/images/products/600x600/48177516S.jpg
they had wrong offset pinning, but that's not a problem, I just filed down the other pin. The bulb can hold on just fine with only one metal pin, at least in the OEM indicator. I had them for 5 years, nowadays I have leds.

Well I guess the moral of my story is, that you should somehow confirm that they actually provide enough light to be usable, because it seems, that there are some pretty low quality bulbs for sale out there. So you wouldn't waste your money, like I did.
