Hi Chris, Be sure to check the fuse as they will just stop making contact.
They will be the last four fuses on the front bumper end of the fuse holder.
Just roll the fuse in the holder and it will make contact again. A volt meter
will tell you if you have 12 volts on the "comesouta" end of the fuse. If you
need a bulb they are standard stuff from the days when all cars had round
eyes. Ask for a "sealed beam headlight" that should do it. Your belt size may
be imprinted into your belt but it can be measured for length so take it with
you. Good luck Tommy in Tampa

Can I purchase amphi compatible Headlamps and Fan belts at my local
part store? Is there a non-amphi description I can give the clueless
parts manager to avoid 3 hours of how/why/when/are you sure/no...?

I have a light out, and also would like to replace the belt.

Chris,
The NAPA number for the Amphicar fan belt is: 7410.

Yes, a 7410 is listed on the club xref page (Or, it you have
already ordered and received the Amphicar Archive CD for
February 2002, you could do this at home: A search for
"fan+belt" bings up about 40 hits in a few seconds including
the old club's Universal Parts Listing page on which the NAPA
7410 and Gates numbers are listed... and ... It also finds
several stories of bakelite pulley woes and broken fan belts
and encouragement to cary a spare...), But, back to belt
sizes... one of my cars has a Delco Remy generator with a
proper width steel pulley/fan (and a customized bracked to get
it all lined up right) and I had to use a 7400 (or a 7405
would work in this customized case at the extreme end of
adjustment with no adjustment left for stretching). So, you
might consider that there are several versions of
generator/alternator and mountings that might need a slightly
different length, but the width should be the same to match up
with the crank and water pump. Anyway, if you had the Archive
CD, a search on headlight also brings up the Universal Parts
listing page for a GE HO6024 which was a standard bulb years
ago. Headlight also finds a humorous post from the Amphighini
to the Amphi which then if you search on Amphighini brings up
more of the humorous fun and then searching on Lamborghini
brings you to several pages and pictures of this one-of-a kind
car. No wonder people who have this Archive CD have spent
hours just reading and exploring and feel they've only
"scratched the surface" as they research side topics that
tweak their interest and then research into other side
topics... Anyway, I'll make this my last plug for the sample
CD contents that can be seen at:
http://www.amphicar.net/aboat2/cd/
I will say that a "google.com" search on the live internet for
"amphicar+fan+belt" brings up the same Universal Parts Page.
Isn't sharing of knowledge on the internet wonderful! Think
how hard this was years ago!

Re: Re: Belts and Headlamps

Any three prong round headlight will work fine. Actually I'm not sure if
you can get the old type but the halogen bulbs work great and should be used
anyway.

The original fan belts were"continental-schmalkeilriemen" and the size # is
9,5 x 1037LA or 9,5 x 1075LA. I'm not sure how this cross references.
