    Not sure why I am striking out on where to source a double pin connector with boot for 1934 Ford headlights. I am converting this set to 12v, found the bulb no problem. Can’t find a connector to attach to this socket on the outside rod the headlight bucket.

    thanks in advance -

  2. I think on '34 Ford headlights the wires enter through the headlight mounting bolt. A wire conduit would look strange laying on top of a stock '34 fender.
    Any thoughts?
    I would guess that light bucket lived on a '32 or earlier headlight bar and was modified to use the '32 or earlier headlight conduit from light to grill shell. Bob Drake sells a socket like you pictured for a '32 Ford. Not sure who sells an original wire conduit for '32.

    They are big in both Foreign and Domestic correct terminals and wire. There is a large web sight to search through or you can just contact and ask for what you need. Top quality stuff from just solder on wire end buttons for contact to complete harnesses.
     
  9. The headlight in your picture is not 1934 Ford, it is a 1928-29 Ford Commercial headlight..
