Can you add headlights to a 1979 C-81

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

I want to plow snow with my 1979 C-81 but it has no headlights!!

 

Is it possible to add headlights and if so what do you recommend?

 

1) I assume I could bolt some sort of plastic ones on the side of the hood? Which ones would you recommend?

2) Has anyone ever installed any inside the hood somehow to make it look nice?

 

Any help is needed!

 

Thanks, Rustyred

I  did my C-81 with a pair of headlights for a common Sears Garden Tractor and it work out great.....!  Even used the plastic lens (2 pieces) for the front lens.... cost me zero.....

Does it have a blank Plate? I have a headlight assembly from a 69 raider if it will work you can have it for shipping cost.

Whatever way go... add LED bulbs.

Much less power consumption and far brighter light.

 

There a couple really good schematics around here to show you the wiring set-up if you're not already familiar with it.

JPWH,

 

Yes, it has a blank plate. If the light kit you have fits a 1979 C-81 I'm interested for sure. (sorry for the ignorance - still learning the game here)

I am not 100% on this, but I believe any headlight buckets from 79 on back through the 60’s square hoods should fit.
