Bulb Identification

#1

Post by panz4ever » Fri Jun 05, 2009 9:28 pm

A month back MIke (flatheadsix) provided some good info on bulbs for dash, marker, turn signals and spot lamps. Have another question along the same lines. I was sorting through mine based on the above and came across two that are marked T1815. Any help on what these are used for? 6 or 12 volt?

Panz,
If your bulb is a small (9mm) single contact base with sort of elongated tubular glass your 1815 is a 12 volt instrument panel light (speedo, OIL or GEN indicator), should be about the same as a common #1891 dash panel bulb. The common number for the 6 volt equivalent is a #44.

Thanks Mike. Was sorting through my bulbs in order to get the right ones for my 49 EL project. Had those in the same bag as the #44 ones. Knew from your post the #44 were correct for the 6V dash and just trying to make sure I do not fry things when I finally get to kicking her over. Now I know and will set them aside accordingly.
