    Default Sealed Beam Bulbs for Mars 888

    I'm looking for red and blue sealed beam bulbs for Mars 888 lights. Any part numbers and suppliers would be helpful.

    Thanks

    When we had them we had outer lenses of the appropriate color and standard clear sealed beams. I may still have one or two, I'll have to check the number but 4416 rings a bell.

    Throw an R or B after the 4416 and you have the part #. Napa used to be able to get them.

    Do you use them now?

    Take out the lamp and look on the back for the number.

    As someone said 4416R -> RED 4416B -> BLUE

    Check the local NAPA store.

    Ours are clear and I did not assume the numbers to be the same, was looking for verification. Thanks

    Do you want the seam beam or the lens??

    The seal beam has a number on it as stated above by another posted.

    The lens is a standard lens made for the *888* comes in several colors. I take that your department, as does most, run with a clear lens and uses a 50 watt or higher halagon lamp. You can install the lamp so that the 'beam' will either horizontial ways or vertical. Try it both ways to see which works best for you guys.

    Again take the old lamp out and get the numbers off of it and contact the local NAPA or other parts store.

    I put the 4416R's in today.

    It turns out that the bulbs in there are H7600 clear. I found H7600R online in an obscure bulb website after getting this set of 4416R's. The part numbers MARS uses arent the bulb number, but their own inventory number. Thats why I was asking here.

    The H7600R is 37.5W "Signal" bulb, The 4416R is 30W. It seems that the difference is some optics in the reflector that focus the beam differently.

    Thanks for the help though guys. I guess I should do more investigating on my end next time.

    I am looking into retrofitting with whelen PAR 36 LEDs now that I found they make such a light...should be interesting!

    IMO, I would not put LED's in the 888. They do not "project" any beam. They are very effective looking at the light, but I don't think they give the advance warning bouncing off trees, signs, buildings etc., which is what makes the 888 so effective. Again., just my opinion.

    I very much agree, but drivers are complaining about them at night and rather than risk the lights being removed from the rig I'm trying to find an equitable solution.

    If drivers are complaining, then the lights are doing their job.
