If you could give me a description of the bulb I might be able to help. Voltage, base type-bayonet verses screw base, globe type- round, teardrop, flatface, diameter of globe, diameter of base, any manufacturer part number. Scott

Here's a pic of the bulb. It appears that the bulb is permanently attached to the screw knob but we're not completely sure. The markings on the face of the knob are"MAZDA 323 3V". Thanks

I have these bulbs, new original condition. Send me a PM. From the look of your photo the glass bulb is loose from the metal mount. .... Brian

I need a light bulb for an B-16 magnetic compass. The light bulb comes with the housing permanently attached so it can be screwed on the front of the compass and illuminates from the inside as opposed to shining on the glass.
This goes to 1947 L-17 airplane. Thank you for your assistance.
