Headlight assembly question

Not open for further replies.
Jul 20, 2008
My basket case came without a headlight so I've purchased an Emgo 7" universal bullet shaped shell/rim and a 7" halogen headlight assembly from rockypoint. The headlight assembly is sloppy loose in the shell with the rim attached. What keeps this assembly tight? Oldbritts shows qty 1 retaining wire clip, is this it?
I can't recall how many clips I have in place, holding the rim and lite together. Four or five should do.
I had this same problem when I switched from stock to the one from rockypoint. The clips weren't tight at all, and there's no way to really adjust them. I bent them just a little, and then used a bunch of silicone to seal it to the outer ring

The parts books list the quantity of 504665 wire clips as 6, not 1, and you will need at least 4 or 5 of them to hold the reflector unit securely in position.

yes, kind of like little w's

And they are often called "W clips".
You need to bend the arms of the 'w' clips in a little. Then hook the bit in the middle of the 'w' on the light rim, and hook both ends of the w clip under the lip of the rim. The more clips the better! If the headlight unit seems loose in the rim then try the clips the otehr way round.
