KD 517 Cab lights

Recommended Posts

My Model-B 46 came with five good KD517 bezels and amber lenses. What I don't have are the bases. Has anyone hacked-to-fit any of the new el-cheapo teardrop plastic cab lights to fit the KD517s?

At $23 for five el-cheapos, it doesn't seem like too big a waste of money if it doesn't work. I've wasted more than $23 on a lot of stuff/ideas that didn't work!

517 s Are getting as gold as vent windows.  I have been looking for years for some green glass lenses for 517s. Use to be able to buy complete 517 s from Mack about ten years ago but they were really cheaply chromed. They would rust bad if left outside

Thanks, Hobert for the link. My original lights on the F model still work, but the gaskets and bases are deteriorated. Paint and body on the F is my next project after I get the MH done.

These lights have a semi curved base that match up to the B roof pretty well.    Not sure how they will sit on the F's roof.

Are the original 38MO216 cab roof marker lamps no longer available from Watts ?

That's an interesting part number - it brought up a whole bunch of "equivalents". Specifically the DO-Ray 410's, which led to a whole bunch of truck cab lights. Anybody know about the DO-Ray 410?
