Military headlights with sealed beam units

Question

Hi,

I purchased these military headlights via a well known web based sales site; when they arrived I was surprised (but not disappointed as they might well be better for my purpose) they have sealed beam units installed, these are obviously not as intended as the redundant wiring is still in place.

However the sealed beam units do not have any marking on them to indicate what voltage they are intended to run. Can I assume that they are commercial vehicle 7" units and they are for 24 volts. I know I could wire them up to a 12v supply and see if they are bright or dim and then try them at 24v. Seems strange they are not marked.

Are you sure they are sealed beam units? Undo the clips and have a look. They should be standard 7” headlamp units as fitted to Land Rover Etc.

My guess is that they are 12 volt, I had a problem with water getting in to one of the headlights on my Leyland Daf, I searched the internet and couldn't find 24 volt sealed beam headlights anywhere. If you need some 7 inch headlights that take H4 halogen bulbs I just happen to have some new ones for sale.
