Hey gent's,

I am wanting to retrofit my RS-100 from a sealed beam but use the oem housing, it is a shared part with the DT175 from 74-75... Just wondering if anyone has ever put any sort of H4 conversion style bulb or housing into of of these. I would like to convert to LED light entirely as my battery is quite small.

Also it appears to be a 5.5-6" bulb, does that wound right?

If it's the same as the DT175 you can use a 5-3/4" H4 reflector with an LED bulb... search the forum, many threads... including one on an LED bulb that has the fan inside the headlight rather than hanging out the back where it might not clear the bucket.
