    Grimes Beacon Help Needed

    I recently acquired a Grimes model 40-0101-14-12 rotating light. It has a nice glass dome and retention ring (not shown) but is missing it’s bulb. It says to use a 1940 lamp. I can probably find one but was curious if another more common bulb found in light bars would work. As I dug further...

    Code 3 Stinger Problem

    So I pulled the motor out of the housing. The shat will spin but it’s pretty stiff. It doesn’t spin freely. As I look at the motor, I’m not sure how to put power directly to motor to test it. I assume the positive would go to where the wire connects with the motor. I’m not sure where to put...

    Strobe Problem

    Thanks everyone for their expertise. After some testing, it looks like the problem was with the bulb. I tried the bad bulb in both beacons and it acted up in both lights. I tried the good bulb in both beacons and it flashed as it should on both lights. Based on that, it appears the problem...

    Info on this?
