    Has anyone had a problem with the adjustment stud in the bottom of the headlamp housing just spin and not tighten up? I have 3 that went bad. How much do those housings run?

    i have one where the stud and nut are rusty and wont loosen or tighten, the whole headlight spins when i put the ratchet to it. headlight assemblies are $90 a pair at NAPA around here, they are made by grote, the company that makes them for fisher but they look a little different. i think, and im not sure about this, but a buddy of mine said individual headlights from fisher are around $150??? seems high but anyway its OEM.

    for right around $200 you can get a prewired, brand new set of fisher intensifires all set and ready to go....MUCH better light than the old style in all ways!!

    I just got a set of the traditional MM lights today and they are practically brand spankin' new. I am going to anti seize the heck out of the studs and up inside the metal bracket.

    I also have a set of the old aluminum fisher lights that are rusted on. I need to cut the nut off (haha !) and clean up the threads to save them.

    man i tell you every body i have see make headlights the stud mount area's is were they fall down ,the only exception i have seen is the light's made for curtis plow's it's three time's thicker than any body else's,on every body else's, the first time you have to loosen them up the slot in the base strip's out .you just about have to use a nut splitter on them before you try to loosen them .
