FT57 Original

I bought this week an original Lucas FT57 headlight as fitted to a Ferguson tractor. It still has most of it’s grey paint on.

Look closely at the lens and the bar that runs on the inside of the lens.


I do currently have an FT57 headlight fitted to my tractor but it wasn’t originally fitted to a Tractor. Look closely at the second picture of the light fitted to my tractor. note the lens and lack of bar inside the light.



SO now the dilemma, the light I currently have fitted has been chromed and although not original adds a bit of bling to an otherwise grey tractor. I think I’ve got used to the shiny chrome. so should I replace it with the FT57 I have just bought and move the chrome one to the plough light at the back or replace it with the newly purchased original FT57. Or what I think I’m going to do is replacing the internals of the chrome light with the Original lens and bar inside. Then use the original outer and not right internals on the plough lamp at the back.

    Hi Tim
    the light fitted on your tractor seems to be a Lucas SFT575, 5″ 1/2 diameter. That should be the correct rear light. Hope this help. Max, Rome, Italy.
