  • Quick Question front turn signal bulb

    Had to drive my '63 Lark to work today because I'm meeting with the insurance agent and on the way to work the left front turn indicator bulb went (back is OK, front bulb is blown) and I was hoping to stop by Autozone and pick up a bulb. Any idea what the correct bulb size is?

    It's probably an 1157...maybe 1156 but 1157 is more likely. Take the old bulb in with you...1157 has two filaments and contacts on the base...1156 has a single filament and contact. Also check and see if you need a clear or amber version.

      My '63 Lark owner's manual says 1034 for both parking lamps and tail/turn lamps. They're identical except that the 1157 pulls about 0.5 amps more at full bright.

        yup, 1034 is the stuff. 1157 and P21/5W will interchange in a pinch, but if you're still using the original flasher, will flash faster than normal.

          1157 or 2057 can be used in place of the 1034 bulb. I believe that 1034 is an obsolete number. Installing an 1157 bulb in place of a 1034 won't make any difference to your electrical system. Bud
