My LED headlamp bulbs arrived and I fitted them yesterday. they help but they don't make a huge amount of difference because as it happens my reflectors are painted with some matt silver paint.

Does anyone know if the modern spurious headlamps still use BA15D headlight bulbs or do they use a more modern bulb fitting. the LED lights weren't cheap so I'm not crazy about them going to waste. I could take the reflectors out of a new set of lights if I knew they'd fit my bulbs. Or I might look into chrome paint for the reflectors, would be better than what I have now,

It doesnt hugely matter, it's not like I plan on doing much road work or anything, just be handy around the yard in winter being able to see better.

I have repaired a pair of Butler headlights by fixing a pair of reflectors from a cars headlights. They were also round and some larger in dia with compared to original Butlers but its no big deal to cut sections of the tin reflector so that when pushing against the tractors reflector, they will fit and when a radius is also cut, it will bend nicely to about the same depth. A couple of rivets keep them on. RGDS erkki

I would be amazed if a haybob PTO shaft is good enough to run a chipper! think you will quickly find it goes solid thanks to torsional forces and then if you are not lucky can damage your tractor pto
