Looking for the correct dual filament bulb specification (6 volt) for the front turn signals/parking lights for my 59.
Thanks

Can anyone tell me the various bulb numbers for turn/brake lights, small front turn signal bulb (running light?), back up light bulb? What I mean is the common numbers if I was to do a search for automotive bulbs, for example BS175...whatever they are? Am I asking this correctly?

Bulbs are old and can't see the numbers on them. I know there are single and dual filament. Just need the standard or common number.

I am sure I saw a topic on this but can't seem to find the correct search word to find the discussion. A link to the discussion or the common numbers would be helpful. Looked in the owners manual and the Bentley.
Thanks,
Jeff

Sorry, found this after searching forever, I believe this information is correct and what I was seeking.

Bulbs are sized by their number, not brand. For 12V, the large two filament bulb is #1157, the single filament is #1156, and the small single filament is #89. These are universal bulb numbers and should be what you have.


Sorry for not digging further..............
Jeff

Not all bulbs are created equal...

1034 Low = 8.3w High = 23.0w
1157 Low = 8.3w High = 26.8w
2057 Low = 6.7w High = 26.8w
2357 Low = 8.3w High = 28.2w
