Headlight "W" spring

Hi. New here. Finishing up a 76 Hercules p1 moped. It was bought new by a friend and sat in barn for almost 30 years. Running well now but can't figure out how to secure the headlight with the w Spring clip. Do I need more than 1 of these? Only 1 found upon disassembly.

Re: Headlight "W" spring

good save. u need atleast 3, stock they come with like 6, duct tape for now

Re: Headlight "W" spring

Thanks for the response. I will order some.....how / what orientation do they install? Can not find any pictures

Re: Headlight "W" spring

the ends of the W go into bezel. center bulb on nubbie, start on far end, one end, push down n out to attach, adjust bulb, repeat semi equally.

Wow..wouldn't have figured that out thanks for the pics. Will a few more...

Re: Headlight "W" spring

Sorry : bazel ^ should BEZEL .

Re: Headlight "W" spring

Meant to say I will have to get more clips. I tried putting my one clip in both of those orientations and doesn't seem to fit either. The outer rim of the bulb has 2 steps not allowing the clip to stay in place. Mabey I need counter pressure from another clip on opposite side...will try again once clips arrive. Thanks again for the pics. This thing is a blast to ride...

Got the clips today. Struggled to get them in and now the headline bucket won't fit because the clips prevent the bucket from seating all the way. What am I doing wrong?

Re: Headlight "W" spring

Update... Removed several clips and it fits. Only used 3 clips and headlight fits in bucket. Can't use more without interference. Love this frigging moped. Looking for more now... Too bad kids are grown...would have loved this thing.

Re: Headlight "W" spring

Good you got it sussed .

And , if Dad isn't too old to have interest , then the kids should really get the bug . LOL

But , it is written that no kid will have the same level of interest as the parent , in anything . ;)(edited)
