Help With A Replacement Bulb

Today on a maintenance visit I ran across an old path light type fixture with a burned out automotive tail light looking bulb with a "1141 12.3V 218CP" marking.

Any suggestions finding a replacement bulb?

Thanks / Regards,

Mex

I have seen some old systems that did use automotive style bulbs. I usually get replacements at advance or car quest.

1141 is a standard single contact bayonet lamp. the lower wattage version is a 93 or 1003, the higher wattage version is a 1156.... you should be able to get these just about anywhere... auto parts, kmart , wal mart etc.

For a longer life version look for GE brand with a KR at the end. The standard 1141 has a life of about 750 Hours.

Thanks for everyone's help!

This just shows my inexperience......I thought I was looking for an "AC" bulb.
I did not know that an automotive bulb ("DC" I thopught) would work.

Thanks again,

Mex

Mex, there really is no difference between AC and DC operation of an incandescent lamp. Big difference when you are talking LED lamps mind you.

James,

Thanks for your additional information.

I ask a lot of "rookie" questions but I try my best to never ask the same one twice!

Regards,

Mex
