The instructions call for the use of a PR 15 (4.8 volt) Pre-Focus Bulb and 6 volt Blinker Bulb. Note 4 in the directions,The Blinker Bulb starts flashing after a short warm- up. The three that I own have USALITE on bottom and made in hong kong twice on the edge.

I have a green one very similar to this. It has a crown embossed on the botton with the word "crown" embossed under the crown. It also has a hexagonal stand attached to the bail hinges. What bulb does the main light take? Mine is missing and seems to be an odd size.
