Hey all, I've got a 1954 JD 50. I burned out a headlight the other night when I was using it to unload silage. Just curious, does anybody know if there are LED replacements for them? It would be nice to have a bit more light output! I've searched it but have come up empty handed so far....

Thanks
Jim

years ago, i took my steel light holders off, and went with the rubber backed sealed beams. no problems since. i wanted to keep my back light on, cause of the red light in it for going down a road. i had to hunt down another one on account of the inside of mine was bad. my bulbs has lasted good too--should back then the red bulb was like $16 bucks IRC:dunno:at jd.

Are you running 12 volt or 6? I found a replacement that said it worked on 12 volt, but it was $90 a bulb so I didn't purchase any. Not sure if they would have worked on a 6 volt system though.

If you have a part number for the sealed beam bulb you are currently running, just google that number followed by "LED replacement". As for your red tail light, just put a little tail light lens repair tape over it and now you have a red LED tail light too.

Running a 12v system, I'm willing to put money into the bulbs if they are bright and will last. I'll try to run the part number for replacements and see what happens

Found led replacements for the AD2062R bulbs on eBay. Ordered a couple as I'm curious to see how they perform. They only put out 150 lumens but are probably better than the OEM bulbs. Guess we shall see...

Let us know what you think of them. I've been debating whether or not to switch my M to LED lights for a while. The only time I really use my lights is for snow plowing, but the little 35watt bulbs are pretty dim even when they are shining on snow.

Installed them today.... Seem to be much brighter with a nice crisp, white light. Haven't tried them at night yet tho. And of course, while switching out the rear light bulb, I dropped the glass lens and busted it.... There goes another $25....
