    Does Anyone Know.....

    If a GE #284 sealed beam is a 6 or 12 volt light? I have searched the net and checked at a local parts house and haven't found much info on it at all. The last 12 volt ones I bought were 4411s. I want to use it cuz it works on 6 volts but is very dim.

    It was the rear lamp on my Allis C. I've converted it to 12 volts and changed the fronts to 12 bulbs, I guess I could put 4411s there. The rear one was dim so it may be a 12 volter. I have had this thing under all sorts of light, but the only other markings I can find are "Made in USA" and a "D'. It's gotta be pretty old. The GE logo is in the front center.

    Oh, that's a good thing!!!!! My bosses dad used to be the AC dealer in town, and he still has some of the old books. Ill look it up and see what I can come up with. Might have been a "cross over" bulb or something that I can find current.
