  • 6 Volt Positive Ground LED Bulbs Found

    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 in 1947-52 cars. I can use these to make turn signals for the Model A.
    Do a Google search for superbrightleds.com and search through the vast assortment of LED's they offer.

    Thanks for sharing. We've bought from them for a '49 Ply.tail lights et al.. The lights were great (similar to the 1157 hyper shape) but got real hot behind plastic repro. lenses because they were forward throw. We've been searching for 1158 style dual contact bulbs with direct opposite side pins for another 6 volt car with turn signals and no luck finding them so far. The 1157's pins are offset and can be made to work. BTW, we've had good success with the A vendors' rear LED's 12 volts, installed by a prior owner for tail/stop/turn signals in 1 turnkey system. We didn't need the special 12volt electronic flasher to operate them as some have experienced.

      Finally Found 6 Volt Red LEDs for Turn Signals
      by Tom Wesenberg
      If I install turn signals, I would like to have them somewhat hidden, so I've been looking for 6 volt red LEDs, and finally found some on ebay. I also bought identical amber LEDs from the same seller. This is a back burner project, so it may not get done anytime soon.

      LED turn signals ??
      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?...

      Model A LED Headlights and Turn Signals
      by H. L. Chauvin
      Have no idea if some Model A owners ever noticed recently that some modern cars today have turn signals mounted immediately adjacent to their modern headlights.

      At night or in daytime, some modern turn signals are over powered by modern headlights especially when one is driving with their bright lights "ON".

      Observing these types of modern close proximity turn signals...

      6 volt fog lamps
      by plyfor
      We've been trying to locate 5 1/2" diameter 6 volt LED or non sealed beam lights with lower wattage bulbs to use as turn signals. The present bulbs are sealed MAZDA 401-2A similar to the 35 watt Westinghouse bulbs available from Taillight King and others which fit in housings and retained by a chrome trim ring. Looking for a source for LED or single replaceable bulbs out there, before we try...

      Found a 6Volt LED flasher
      by AL in NY
      Looking on the internet for a Model T friend of mine who needs a low current 6 volt flasher and found one on Amazon. Looks like it's built using an internal relay, so it's not load dependent for flash rate.
