IMPORTANT PAR46 DIMENSIONAL INFO - PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING

 

A PAR46 bulb dimension is 46 eighths of an inch (46 x 1/8") or nominally 5.75" in diameter. Below is a chart for PAR bulb dimensions.

 

Please confirm the diameter of your existing bulb to be sure it is indeed a PAR46 format. If you know the existing Bulb PN that your tractor uses (for example GE 4553), you can Google the PN to find a site that will give you the dimensions of your bulb. Click HERE for a list of popular bulb PNs where they list the PAR size. Once again, PAR46 Bulbs are about 5.75" in diameter.

 

 


The PAR46 LED is offered in SPOT beam pattern only. The PAR46 bulb is approximately 5.75" in diameter. The Spot beam is approximately a 30* spread and the bulb is compatible with 12V and 24V electrical systems.

 

Read the wiki definition of "PAR" (parabolic aluminized reflector) HERE

 

If you're still using amp sucking incandescent bulbs in your tractor, teardrop spotlight or off-road vehicle, your electrical system will thank you, especially if your vintage equipment still uses old-school generators, famous for browning out during night operations

Installation Tips

 

A good connection method is to crimp two 22-18 gauge (typically red sleeves) ring terminals for a #6 or #8 stud (I forget what the bulb screw terminal is originally) onto the bulb wires. Now place an appropriately sized vinyl sleeve, heat shrink tubing or other insulating material over each ring terminal and slide it out of the way.

Be sure you have previously confirmed which lead is Positive and which is Ground. You do this with a voltmeter or an appropriate voltage test bulb. If you do not know how to make the Positive and Negative voltage wire determination, STOP, phone a friend who does know how to make this determination or call your A&P.

 

Then secure the bulb ring terminal to the wiring. Connect the red bulb wire to the Positive wire and the black bulb wire to the ground wire. Secure each wire to it's ring terminal using a short #6 or #8 screw and nut.

 

 

Star washers on either side will insure torque is maintained over time. Tighten the screw and nut combination and then slide the insulating sleeve over the ring terminal and screw connection and use small wire ties to close both ends of the sleeve over the wires.
