I am putting a 12 vt conversion on one of my WD45's, and went to YT tractor parts, looking for two 12 vt. sealed beam lights, to fit in the original light housings. I found all the componets for replacing the lens, reflectors, and 12 vt,bulbs, but wanted 12 volt sealed beams. If yt has them, then I failed to find them. Does any of you know if the auto parts places, offer's them, or do I have to stay with the 12 volt bulbs, and reflectors?

I took my WD 45 and put the LED replacement bulbs ($20.00) for the standard 12 volt bulb. I used the old reflectors & lens. I clean the lens which cleaned up nice and clear and polished the the reflectors with chrome polish till they shined.

Sealed beams will not clamp tight in the Guide housings that used a reflector and lens. Some guys use rubber hose split to take up the gap. I designed a bushing 3D printed out of flexible TPU rubber filament. This slips over the sealed beam and takes up the gap. I printed these in black. I also can print in clear.
