does the head light have a twist in bulb that looks sort of like this..:


or with a right angle instead of a straight connector?

IF so, there should be a p/n on the plastic housing somewhere..

this is what is stock on the toro... ( GE 892 )

and is 16watts.

I thought at some point the Ariens was the same bulb, just with a right angle connector.
I think your Ariens had the same basic engine as my Toro 1128OXE.

Toro's manual only give a Toro p/n , and it's 23bux for the Toro boxed bulb... but luckily my blower's bulb has the p/n on the plastic housing, I've found them at Rock Auto for $3.70 each by searching for GE 892.

I just went to LED, so was interested in the rating, didn't want to exceed it with 2 LED lights.

With the original headlight, the AC measured right at 13.5VAC rms.
My Toro is a 1amp AC generator , these bulbs are rated normally for 12Vdc automotive application.
As stated by Coby7, the DC power is just fine on the bubl, so long as the bulb wont over load the Alternator on the new engine.

the bulb is a 20 w so i guess ill change the alternator from the orignal motor thanks
well, sounds like your ok ...
Assuming the output is 13.5vdc

20w/13.5vdc = 1.48Adc
didnt you say the new engine's dc output was 1.5Amps ?
Based on my Toro, they spec'd the output right at the light's requirement.
My Toro's output is rated @ 1amp and a 16watt bulb : 16w/13.5vacrms : 1.18amp
So try it, and measure the DC voltage.


And as Coby7, you can put LED lighting on.
I just put two on mine, drawing 1/2 the current, with more light out put and more coverage than the single halogen OEM light.

With a DC output, you have a lot to choose from.
