These tri-five parts suppliers don't sell the taillight bulb socket. Unless you can find one in their catalags that I can't see. The ones at the auto parts stores are intended for trailers I think and generic applications. I'd prefer to not hack the chrome housing to make one fit.maybe try local first (napa, advance, ect.). try www.classicchevvy.com, danchuk, www.truckandcarshop.com and www.hhhclasic.com. :anim_25:
Hi Nutjob,Can you not just straighten out the one you have? Or drop a thin insulating ring to the bottom to prevent the contact hitting the side, e.g. thin strip of plastic?
Greg, we don't have Lordco around here, but i think this is the route I'll have to take - get something non-trifive and modify it to fit.i to had some issues with that.
i got replacement after market gear from Lordco. they are not identical but they work just fine.
pull out entire insulating sleave. incert new plastic connector and hook up wires.
Yep, you are right I read that a few days ago after doing a search on here. I had filed down the lead pins to help get a better fit. They did fit better afterward but didn't help the side shorting problem with the AAW pigtail.The 1157 will work ,but is not the correct original bulb. I believe the pins are longer causing it to fit tight. The original bulbs are 1034 and have shorter pins
