Reversing/indicator light in one - brighter options!
« on: April 09, 2015, 12:49:30 PM »
So I have been wiring a complete commodore wiring loom to my Bedford, and when it came to the tail lights as you know the bedfords indicator/reversing lights share the same fitting with a dual filament bulb.

in the past cars like this use the same bulb as a stop/tail light, 21watt filament for stop lights and 5 watt for tail lights .... and in this case that's fine, but for the reversing lights I wanted them to be the bright light, however the issue is then that the indicator being the 5watt then makes it flash really fast. (less load on the flasher relay)

I have heard that you can get electronic flasher relays to solve these sort of problems but they do not click like a normal flasher relay so I wasn't real keen on that option!

so after a bit of searching I have found that Narva make a dual filament bayonet cap bulb with 21/21w (normally 21/5w) and they are part number 47005.

I haven't yet tried to source any but have been advised that repco locally can get them for me and im sure any good auto elec would have them or be able to get them!

hopefully this might help one or two of you looking for brighter reversing lights while keeping the indicators happy!
No matter what the question is, the answer is always more horsepower!
