Tomos A3k 1983 Model.....Correct Bulbs

Can someone tell me the correct rear light / stop light bulbs for my A3k please ?.....the old girl is the 6 volt version....the Haynes manual that I have contradicts itself, in the lighting section it states that the rear light is 6v 5 w....and stop light 6v 15w.....the wiring diagram has this the other way round, I think the first option is correct, but just looking for clarification.....Thanks.

Yeah stop light should be higher wattage

Re: Tomos A3k 1983 Model.....Correct Bulbs

Thanks for that, yes I reckon so, first time I've known a Haynes manual to make a mistake on a wiring diagram......

A 6v10w bulb can also be used for the brake light.

1157 or 1156 depending on single or double filament.

Re: Tomos A3k 1983 Model.....Correct Bulbs

1156 and 1157 are 12v bulbs, for what it's worth.

I've used the 1154 6v dual filament where applicable as tail/break and hi/lo headlights in a pinch. They go on old tractors and pre-66 VW's. They aren't 5/10, but more like 5.?/16 ? watts. A lot of auto parts stores have them on the shelf for about $6 a pair.

Then, if need be, pick up the exact bulbs from your favorite moped parts online store.

They work even tho they are 12v. They have the right resistance factor too.
