< Back to 4. Electrical System


Standard headlights are a 7" sealed beam. Aftermarket lights are available at most auto parts stores under the part number 6024. The stock headlight is a 50/40 watt sealed beam.

An improved headlight is to install a Sylvania 6024XV. This is a 65/55 watt sealed beam. (Some owners may want to consider LED running lights to balance the additional load placed on the electrical system by the higher wattage bulb.)

Aftermarket kits to change to H4 lamp cartridges are also available quite cheaply, which will allow a wide variety of lights (including halogen and xenon) to be used. The conversion is very simple, but some kits may be a bit deeper than the original light, making it difficult to fit all the wiring back inside.
