Stock light bulbs for a 78ish JCB 3C111

Post #1 by Rumrunner64 » Wed May 16, 2012 1:48 am

I am looking for a supplier of the stock light bulbs for my 78ish JCB 3C111. Any and all help is appreciated.
All my lenses are in good shape, I sure would like to keep them.
Thanks Rob

This is a common problem with older machines,hard to get hold of bulbs.On the Drotts I overcame this problem by replacing the internal fittings .For example,Fordson tractor headlight internal fittings fit Drott Butler light casings.No modifications required as you just swap internals and use the original lenses.
Worth looking into on the 3C as most UK manufacturers use common light fittings.

I'm in the same boat Rob. I need a headlight bulb for my 3DII, never seen the type before.
Luckily all the other bulbs are readily available.
