I bought on ef these on Ebay. It was inadequately packed and arrived with the sealed beam cracked and missing the rear blinker bulb. The seller refused a return and now I am searching for replacement bulbs. Does anybody know specifically the designation of these bulbs or their available equivalent counter parts? I am haveing a real tough time with this one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have a model 164 just like the one pictured here, but in better shape. The light works fine, but the flasher doesn't. I have done nothing to determine why that is and to remedy the situation but I am speculating it is a dirty contact as visualy the bulb looks ok; and I was too lazy to pull out my multi-meter. I'd be open to selling it for the best offer.

I still have my Mom's in the original box in excellent condition. Had no idea that it came out in 1975 as she carried it in her car forever.

There are older models of this flashlight. The one I have says it is No. 24. The one pictured above is No.164. I have no idea how old mine is.

My dad kept one of these in his car around 1961 or so. I remember being enthralled with its' beam of light that seemed to go on forever up into the night sky. I was only allowed to turn on the flasher for short periods of time as the bi metal strip in the bulb depleted the battery and dad might need every bit of power if he came upon an emergency situation. Or so he said. I found one in a thrift shop a few years back. It is in great condition and I feel like I am ten years old again when I shine it up into the night sky.
