Brad, on my 310, the low beam headlight connector was not standard H4 wiring. I think I flipped the ground and high beam pins to make these work properly. I ended up taking the female pins out of the plastic connector housing and connected them to male pins from the headlight. That low beam connector housing is really oversized and it helped to illiminate it.

At least that's how I thought the Triumph sports cars were set up. Possibly it's different now or I just don't understand how headlights are supposed to work!

Thanks for the heads up. I'll report back once I get them installed.

Thanks!

There should be plenty of tutorials online as to how to aim headlights in the UK. I would think it's msinly a matter of having the headlights angle right instead of left on low beam.

Here are a couple pics from inside the cab.

1983 Airstream 310

Does anyone know the bulb number that goes in a 1983 Airstream 310. I am picking my 310 up tomorrow and it has one low beam light out and I don't want a ticket getting it home. Thanks, sorry for the intrusion on your thread did not want to start a new thread for a bulb

Any H4656 4x6 sealed beam headlight should work I believe......you can pick one up at any auto parts store. They are inexpensive for basic sealed beam headlight.

No apologies for jumping in here, feel free at any time. In fact, please do

Welcome to out side of the house! One word of caution: even with all four bulbs working, don't expect to get safe illumination unless a previous owner has improved the original wiring. I avoided driving at all in the dark until getting led high beams wired with relays.
