    Great photo and many thanks. What about license lamps? Did they all have the center reflector? Mine seemed to have three lamps.

    Any chance you can bring your Harrington to SUNI next month? That would make six of them there!

    Jerry is that really the setup?? Very strange.

    Normally a tail light/brake are in the same lens and indicator seperate... Also normally the indicator is the outside lens...

    Your above has indicator and brake paired ... And on the inside.....

    Im confused

    Michael, I did a more thorough investigation and yes. The running light I believe is meant to be at the outer most edge and the most rear point as a marker light. The brake light is at the same location.

    Lights and reflector are:
    Outside - Running and Brake - 1157 bulb with two elements - small one for running/larger one (brighter) for brakes
    Middle - Reflector
    Inside - Turn signal - 1156 bulb

    Good news, as I was checking the brake lights, they did not come on so I checked the bulb and found elements to be ok. When I prep the PHLM for SUNI I will figure this out.

    Indeed. Then the innermost has to be the rear light & brake light combined...

    I was hoping you would respond Jan. Too funny. When I restored the PHLM I obviously switch the brake/running light with turn signal when I put it back together. It is good Bobbytriumph brought up the question.

    P.S. Regarding the number plate lamp I think there is a centered bigger and 2 smaller holes in the upper rear rail above the plate. Check for a Lucas L534.

    For the centre reflector yes they all used it. It's a very specific Lucas part and at least to my knowledge not available as a repro anywhere. Let me know if you need a pair :rolleyes:
