Head Light and Turn Signals

The 750 Ive been trying to bring back to life came without bulbs in the front turn signals and the headlight. I attempted to put the rear bulbs in the front signals to test the and I couldnt get them to fit. I dont have the manual yet, and am hoping to get the bulbs at walmart. Does anyone know if the front signal bulbs are a different size than the rear? What is the headlamp and the signal bulb number? This would help out alot.

Thanks in advance.

Whatever the number. The front bulbs are dual element and the side pins at the base of the bulb are uneven height from the bulb. The rear bulbs are single element and the side pins are the same height. That is why you can't check front to back.

I picked up a Sylvania H4ST 3 BP 6 SilverStar for the headlamp. Lights up the road a good bit better without taxing the electrical system.

Taxing the electrical system? I knew they'd find a new way to pay for this bailout crap.

I second going with the SilverStar bulb.

Global warming? So what if my kids never see a polar bear. I never saw a dinosaur and I'm ok.

I stated it that way so I would NOT be pointing out that you were mistaken. If that bothers you I'll be happy to go back to my rude , crude, socially unacceptable nature.

I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.
