Hey everyone. So here is the gig. I've got a 1962 Allstate that has a 6V AC system with three bulbs. Two tail bulbs (one is the brake bulb) at 3w, and a headlamp with 22/22w bulb.
My understanding is it's a balanced system and self regulating. So basically there needs to be a 25w to 50w draw on the system. More than that and kaboom, out go the lights. Less than that, no lights.
I've checked all the impedance of the wiring and all is good. It looks like I can find replacement bulbs (headlamp not yet) but it'd be awesome to have a little more brightness to this little machine. So here is my question:
Is there a way to go with 6v or 12v LED lights that will draw enough wattage so it can still mimick the resistance of the incandescence bulbs? Has anybody done this with any success? I don't want to solder resistors on the bulbs, etc. I'm hoping to just buy plug-n-play bulbs. There's got to be a solution with plug-n-play bulbs, and have the system much brighter.
OR, am I delusional in a "everyone will have flying cars" sort of way.
Any help in understanding this would be appreciated Than!
