For those who were following my previous thread, I went back and picked up the NAPA 493 beacon I had passed up on Thursday. I started a new thread so I could update it as I try to restore it. I did not bargain with the old man who owns the antique store, I think he had a fair price on it already. I had not looked at the price on my first visit. So..... I got the light home tonight and hooked it to power and nothing happened. No motor action and no lights. He said it works so I am giving him the benefit of the doubt. It came from Panama City, Fla, according to him, and so it has been exposed to a lot of salty humid air. I think if I clean up the grounds and replace some of the wiring it will be OK. It looks fine, but dirty and corroded inside. No rust though. The Bulbs are T3617 The closure on the band came off in my hand when I took the dome off. I am sure I can fix that too. Anyone have advice on fixing those? How to re-secure it to the band? The Dome was shot and I knew that from the beginning. Here she is: And this is what was on the price tag, so i don't feel too bad yet. I am sure with a few minutes of work and cleaning I will have this thing up and running like new.
