My '58 parts book calls for the same bulb (RS55302) for the front bib light (parking/turn) and the rear (tail/turn) which tells me they must have run a clear bulb in the clear bib lens. If you were wondering why you have a 2 filament socket in the bib light, but only use one filament in the FJ4x, it's because it was a holdover from the FJ25 which used it as both a parking light and turn signal.

Don't forget that the bib light is only a parking light. When wired correctly at the rotary light switch, the parking lights are not on when the headlights are on.

that just doesn't make sense! Would ya get pulled over for that?
This was from Pimp when I just didn't understand the wiring before!

And I just still can't resize tonight!
Probably would get pulled over. I wired the lights on my 25 switch to be the more conventional "Parking" or "Parking and Headlight". I also run amber bulbs in the clear lens. It's not right, but a hell of a lot safer.

Totally lurking here, but from the SOR catalog you can
see that Marv still has the clear lenses. OEM or REPRO?
Don't know.

146-02A-C CLEAR T/S LENS-1963-1968 FJ40/45*CLEAR
That appears to be the clear turn signal lens they're talking about. Now someone just has to come up with a red lens for the two sided (clear on the front? / red on the back) '61 FJ40 turn signal. :laughing:
