1948 Ford 8N - Aftermarket Headlights- Canadien Version

When I bought my 1948 8N it came with these aftermarket style (non-Tract-O-Lites) headlights. The tractor was owned by a potatoe farmer in Canada and he was the original owner. The lights are sealed beam style and are held in place by three wire spring clips similar to the worklight clips, only larger. They are mounted on pie-wedge shaped brackets vertically which allows them to sit in tighter and up higher. It is possible that these were designed for use with front loaders to clear interference with the loader arms, but I'm not 100% certain on this point. Also, the wiring came through an outlet hole on the back of the housing. The mouinting bolts were not hollow.
