  3. If it's just a socket problem you should be able to replace just the socket. I did that on my 51.

    I found the one from my '54. Probably still has the original bulb in it. Mounting plate with socket and I'll throw in the nice glass lense. 20.00 to your door. paypal will work. Let me know. Slug

    Can anyone explain how putting a 12v bulb in a 6v socket can screw anything up?

    Indeed!
    I am guessing that someone tried to force in a bulb that did not fit, or the socket is just so corroded that it's falling apart. The light sockets don't care if the bulbs in them are 6 V or 12 V.
