  • Red LED Warning Light

    If anyone needs a red warning light, these LED's are great and work fine on 6 or 12 volts. I just got my first order and tested them, then placed another order, as I'm sure they will come in handy for many uses. You can even use it as a test light, or clip it across the points to watch it flash as the points open and close to confirm they are working correctly. Also can be used to show power for B/W overdrive.

        I got a big red LED that flashes and magnetic I would stick on my driving chassis rear cross. At least I had some safety equipment.

          Tom, do they work on positive ground set ups? I bought some other led's but wouldn't work on positive ground.

            On my dash rail I wanted to hide my warning lights. I replaced all of the slotted screws with polished stainless phillips head screws and drilled 1/8" holes through some of them. I then slid LED bulbs in from the threaded end and put them in place. I used green for the directionals and blue for the high beam. I think I should have cleaned the lens on my cellphone before I took the pictures!

              Yes, they have two wires, red and black, so you can connect to the right polarity.
              I'm going to use one it indicate when the power is left on for my electric lifts on my large outdoor tool box.
              Since the polarity has to reverse direction, I'll have to run the LED power through a bridge rectifier and from that to the LED.

                  What is the best and brightest stop light system for safety, that fits in the left-side drum taillight for a late 1929 (Red, Amber and clear)? The various Model "A" catelogs offer the following: Regular 32 candle bulb to replace the original 21 candle power bulb, a halogen 50 watt bulb or LED replacement. My goal is to not change the exterior appearance. I intend to use the original generator only. - Warren

                    First, WELCOME to VFF Warren!!

                    Warren, there is made a 6v Pos chassis LED which is very bright for the stock Model A. Not exactly sure who makes it or where you can buy it, and I KNOW that if you use it for the drum taillight you will need to modify both the light and the internal parts of the drum taillight. So, they are available and WAY brighter than anything else.

                    I purchased 2 from these guys.

                        Mitch:
                        Yes I did show them to you at Hellertown. Also had LED bolts holding on the rear license plates to use as backup lights. As I have an F150 trans, the backup light switch was already there.

                        I also have the F150 transmission. They aren't LED's, but this is how my back-up lights came out.

                        Question to bettlesr: did you have to alter the switch on the transmission to get it to clear the floorboard? Seems rather tight there.

                          Welcome Warren. I actually purchased one those Bratton's LED taillite mods that Mitch mentioned. I don't recalling having to modify the taillight at all. I did install a piece of soft foam rubber to keep the circuit boards from vibrating around. I used a 4 incl hold saw to cut the shape cnd then trimmed the foam as needed. Unfortunately I did not take any photos. It is much brigther now. Supergnat

                              No, I didn't have to modify the floor boards (I don't think anyway!). I used the cable and plug that came with the trans. Next time I get under the car I will take a look. Maybe the plywood was cut to clear it and the metal plate around the shifter just covers it? Really don't remember. I do remember the wires on the cable were a little short so I had to splice the wires in a very tight place

                                I went to the link that Mike V. posted and ordered 2 sets of the green LED lights. They came today, so I tested them right away. They work fine, and will light up nice and bright on voltage from 3 to at least 13 volts. These are very nice indicator lights, and at a good price.

                                  by Standing Elk
                                  Are most 6V LED turn signals polarity specific? A friend is trying to install a new set on his 30 pickup which is 6V positive ground. He has a 6V LED compatible blinker relay and still can not get the blinkers to work? The only thing we can come up with is maybe the LED lights will not work on a positive ground system. So what do ya think? Also what is the max allowable end play in the crank shaft?...

                                  At the Gilmore Car Museum in their display case they have a tail light that is either plugged into 110 voltage or maybe battery powered. It is a slow blinking light. I thought it would be cool to have one but would like it to be battery powered so I could move it around. Anyone have ideas what to use to make it battery powered?...

                                  I finally found some 6 volt LED bulbs that really work with positive ground. A year ago I bought some form China that claimed to be good for + ground, but it was a lie. I bought these to try in the instrument panel in my Studebakers, which are also 6 volt positive ground cars. The put out a nice light, but unfortunately didn't work to light up the special glow in the dark gauges that Studebaker used...

                                  I have a restored original early 30 pop-out ignition switch. Car runs very well, I just returned from a 500 mile trip and decided to check my point gap .020 (original) and then timing. The way I did it was to set TDC #1 with pin in timing dimple as usual. Now I used a test light to check continuity. I put the pop-out in the run (out /on position) with no power on the ignition circuit (master electric...

                                  Got a call last night to come and see why the Model A won't start. Took my test light and touched the open point (key ON) and had no light.
