Tail Light Plastic Lens

I am looking for a replacement lens for the rear white light. Mine is OK but I would like a new one. Any one have a source? The off the shelf units from Fleet Farm and local places do not fit....

Have you tried going to a truck stop? They usually have a lot of stuff like that.

Tail light lenses

This place has helped me source hard to find trailer lights, truck clearance lights and so forth. http://www.easternmarine.com/shop/

Good service as well.

any ideas?

Anyone have an idea? I suppose I could replace the whole thing but it still works and is ok.
The plastic cover on the stern light just is yellowing... (yes, I am that particular/ocd)

Thx!

Hannays Marine has a great online catalog. See page 13
Not sure why it comes up as the 2009 catalog as it is the 2011 edition.

I didn't realize that you had a '78. I thought that all the threads were the same for stern lights. You might have to try a couple marine dealers. Do you have the original stern light or are you working with a newer light?

Stern Light

Yup! 1978.... S&S

I think it is the stock pole but I have no idea. Nothing to compare it to? Appears orig?
Definately doesnt work with the Atwood cap. I can replace the whole deal but just replacing the lens is easier.... OR the pole (But I havent checked the plug yet)

Stern Light

FYI: I just replaced the entire light & shaft with an off the shelf Atwood model which lucky for me fit right in the existing base (not that it is hard to change - just didnt want new or different holes added; although the off the shelf base appear to have the same base bolt pattern.)

Here: http://www.attwoodmarine.com/store/product/5110

HINDSIGHT - should have just switched everything to LED to avoid the bulb hassle...but....oh well; I like the bulbs in some cases.
