    Default 24 volt bayonet fitting light bulbs

    Hi,
    Does anyone in the South East know where I can get any 24 volt light bulbs for my engine room bulkhead lights (bayonet fitting).
    Many thanks, Neil.

    Try any agencies which supply lorries, as they all run on 24v.

    TRy ASAP supplies. They only do mail order. If you use them then telephone don't use their internet ordering as it isn't fully interactive ( ie you don't know if they actually have the stock ! )

    Tried ASAP and Partco with no joy.
    I can't believe they are this hard to get hold of.
    I think i'll buy a box of 20 when I do locate them, just for spares!
    Thanks for your suggestions.
    Any other ideas?

    Suggestions. yep.
    do as i've done and rewire pairs of lights in series so you can use much cheaper 12v bulbs on 24v power.
    save yourself a fortune especially if you're about to buy 20 of them!

    Good idea Ashley. I might do that as these bulbs are a nightmare to buy.
    Thanks.

    Try eBay - type in '24volt' and several come up such as '24volt single contact stop/flasher' lamps. A pack of 20 or 30 - currently at 2.50. Ebay No 4569143429
    The seller has both single and double contact type.

    Are you looking for 24v bulbs to fit what would normally be 240v fittings or are thay for veh type holders. If its the first you can get them from City Electrical but thay cost 3+ each. If its the second type try a truck factor.

    Ahhhh.. Top man, it is the first one (standard household lightbulb sized).
    I'll get on to City electrical as they're only round the corner from me.
    The car bulb size is easy to get, its just these ones that aren't.
    Thank you for that.
