Lights of this type/vintage are not my standard collectable item so I am listing it here. I do not know much of anything about the specs of the light (what is factory and what is not). I was told that the dome and magnetic plate on the bottom are not factory.

Here is what I do know...
It runs great. The dome does nor have any cracks but has a good ammount of scratches. The guy I got it from is retired and said he used it on his wrecker. I put on new wire leads, good for running on the display. It has a thick heavy magnetic plate on the bottom. It appears to be thick strips attached to eachother and trimmed into a circle to fit the light.

Inside the base and gear area was pretty dirty. I disassembled the light to clean it up. I scrubbed the old sticky layer of grease and grime from the gearcage parts that make contact when moving (bushings, washers, C clips), dried them off, lightly greased the contact surfaces and reassembled. I did not wipe down or clean the bulbs, bulb holder assembly or motor.

Looking for $100 plus the shipping and packing. (Saw a couple on fleabay go for a lot more so rather then reaching for the stars or haggling, this seems reasonable).

Someone correct me if im wrong, but I think that dome belongs on the model 17??? I thought the 14 had the flat top dome.

In googling it, looks like the 17 was most common but it appears to be interchangable with quite a few models.

BTW... here is a link to another video, shows the insides too.
