I was checking what is currently fitted to my '88 Mini Lucas headlights. Car is in Canada and according to what I've found in Haynes, it should have bulb type 415. Not sure what those are equivalent to in modern bulb types like H4 etc. Are they a British Pre-Focus type? Looking at it in the lamp, seems the bulb is safety wire wrapped into place in the reflector, not using any sort of clip or spring. Is that normal or has somebody hacked it together? Also discovered there is a "pilot" or "parking" light also in the reflector, just like my '70's vintage UK motorcycle.
The headlights are pretty dim for around town driving at night, but do give a nice yellow glow. Highbeam seems OK for dark roads at lower speeds. Can these lucas reflectors take upgraded bulbs or LEDs?
