I'm curious how the fitting would have been for this headlamp unit.
A cats-eye Lucas. With Lucas in tiny letters vertically on the edge of the vertical cats eye.

I've seen the plug-in pilot lights about with a rubber (?) bung, but what about the main bulb(s) and that 2" circular hole ?

Its missing the inner ring, of which there are several to suit the bulb type, which is glued in.

I have a pair from my 49 MM and can have a proper look next week. However I seem to remember the pilot lamp is on a bracket and hangs in front of the hole rather than in it. The sales literature for the MM describes this as a useful feature for illuminating the engine compartment at night.

An interesting point given recent events.

I have a Hella unit on my Trident and an unknown H4 light on the Bonneville. Both are similar to that unit. The Hella features a metal holder for the pilot lamp, the unknown uses the rubber plug for the pilot.

Where would I get the bit that is missing ?
I've got a number of these, possibly new never used.

Glued ?

P.S. Just had a bunfight with Captcha, told me it couldn't connect.
POS ??
