Does anyone know of a brighter - direct replacement head light bulb for the T660 headlights
like a silverstar or zenon type bulb ? the stock # is 0609-251 and i think it's the same 37 Wbulbs as on the firecats , 3 light ZR's and low beam on the twin spar chassis .

check your local auto supply store for alternatives to GE 894. Cheaper than AC.

Just remember, once you're over the hill, you begin to pick up speed.

looks like I may be able to go to an 893
893's appear to be the same axial leads and are rated at 37.5 watts , and i can get them in zenon versions .
can't seem to find any 894's other than stock halogen type .

Thanks for the info

That's a good idea . I'd have to check the main power wire comming into the switch . with all 4 lights , your drawing about 12.5 A
that's quite alot if its only 18 Guage wire which is what i would expect , i would like to see at least 16 guage . Easy fix though .
thanks,

Use a relay and tap to the battery. turning on your high beams activates the relay which powers up the low beams. thus you wont fry anything.

http://www.arcticchat.com/forums/index.php...mp;hl=high+beam

The correct way to do a hi-lo when on hi is to use a relay. Works on T660 4-strokers.

It is free to join HCS. Headlight mod-clickie

To locate the wires, follow them down fron the light bulbs

Terminal # 85: ................Splice into high beam wire, BLUE (solder or scotch lock)

Terminal # 86: ............... Chassis Ground or any black wire

Terminal # 87 & # 30: ......One goes to battery with 15 amp fuse protection, the other, spliced to low beam wire. WHITE

Just remember, once you're over the hill, you begin to pick up speed.
