NwebieCan't find a continuation of " Upgrading your snowblower lights to LED"

I'm a newbie on this awesome site - still learning how to navigate around.

Can anyone tell me if there is (and how to find) a continuation of a thread that closed a year ago?
"Upgrading your snowblower lights to LED lights"

I'm awaiting deliveryof an Ariens 28 Pro Hydro that I will be converting the headlight to LED, and I want to see if there is any new information posted since the above thread closed.

Have not been able to find it but not sure I'm searching correctly.

hmmm..I dont know why it was closed. there seems to be no arguments or anything, and no deleted posts in the last couple pages..strange.
There seems to be no logical reason for its closing..I'll reopen it.

I'm in the process of converting my Ariens. Buy this power transformer. It converts the AC voltage to 12volts DC. It will save a bunch of time.

Thank you Scott. This thread is incredibly informative. Since it ran for about 2-3 years, I just assumed that it died a natural death. However, so many people are making the conversions to LED, I assumed a new thread had been started but I have not been able to find it.

Thank you for the heads up on this bridge rectifier. The price is sure great. I note that it will only handle a max of 3A. Unfortunately I need 4A and have the parts to build my own that will have a rating beyond 5A.

I'd be careful, you could be over stressing they charging system. If you have hand warmers, they use a lot of power. You could burn up the stator. I am putting 2 lights that are 18 watts, total. And I have hand warmers. I am about maxed out.
