My question was to Gaspump. I was not saying the worklight was clear and the taillight was red. We know that. I said the original taillights had BOTH the clear license plate lens and the red tail lamp lens. The Hundred Series tractors revamped the DUOLAMP taillight to a red plastic lens only and eliminated the clear lens altogether. It also did away with the fender bracket and just bolted to the fender directly. I have an original drawing of the 8N-15500 Implement Lamp assembly. My records show this worklight was used from 49 thru 64. The original lamp itself 8N-15514 was never a sealed beam -it had the soldered on bayonet style bulb, Industry Standard now as p/n RP-11.
The worklight could be mounted on either fender bracket -it was nor delegated to one or the other. Some fellas mount both the worklight and taillight the left fender bracket as shown in my picture. Many picture sin implement and tractor manuals depict teh8N with taillight on left -it had to be according to state highway laws -and the worklight on the RH fender. To me that seemed the most practical application.
