The rear taillight bulbs on my '77 Excella 500 are not as bright as I would like. I replaced one several months ago and I noticed that the other was not working yesterday. I found that the bulb had seperated slightly from the metal base. Since it is a 1156 with single element/single contact on base, will the 50 watt halogen backup bulb advertised in J.C. Whitney or sold in auto stores work as the running tailight? I have also thought about replacing the other 1157 stop and turn signal bulbs with halogen. Also, is there a source of LED bulbs that emit light at a 90 degree angle from the base so that the LED is projected straight to the rear of the trailer?
