Hello AMCA friends,
for the second time within a few month I stuggle with the same problem which is why I am asking for help here.
The original bulb contacts on Motolamp headlights with adjustbale focus (I was working on a 1930 and 1931, but guess they were similar until 1936) here 2 brass "tubes" in which the cables were secured by pressing the end of the tube. These "tubes" were put in the bulb socket with a spring on the back to press them against the bulb contacts (pictures show this tube and the complete bulb socket)
When rewiring the lamp, these pressed pieces can no longer be used as original - it would be perfect to use new contacts. Soldering the cables in the old contacts is OK but not perfect.
My question to you:
Is there any supplier for these cylindric brass contact? Does anyone have a large quantity of NOS? I guess they were used on car lamps too....
Best wishes from Europe,
