I agree HowieE. When I looked at these light assemblies last year you could see that the LEDs were placed in the appropriate position to emmit the light in the right direction to provide the proper illumination. That was one of my concerns with just replacing the bulbs. The LEDS can be pointing in the wrong direction with only the bulb replacement.

Nice meeting you and Braith at the 2010 Can Opener. What a nice gathering of people. We will be back next year and hopefully it will be a bit warmer.

Safe Travels!!

You can attach the ground wire next to the hole where the hot wire goes thru the metal, so that it's on the backside of the light base.

You "must" seal the hole that the wire goes thru.

Also, after the light is installed, a bead of sealer around the 2 sides and the top of it, is very essential, to positively make sure there is no leak.

Simply mounting the light against the shell, wouldn't begin to stop a water leak.

What is offered in LED clearance lights and teardrop markers that will match a 65? Steve

Hey Crispyboy,

Did those Grote lights you bought, look like what is in the link you attached. Did the new lights have enough recess or cavity on the back side, to not smash the wires against the shell?
