Duetto Headlight Bucket

My headlight buckets are incomplete. I'm missing the cap and clip on one of them. I need at least those pieces, but would buy a complete bucket if anyone has one.

Thank you! I checked out their web site and they do have 3 different headlight buckets.

I'm not certain any of the 3 that they list are what I'm looking for.
One of them might be, but their photo isn't definitive.
The description is "Headlight bowl 7" plastic 750 / 101 / 105 / 102 / 106".
There isn't anything plastic about the headlight bucket parts I have from my Duetto.

You may want to shoot them an email as their website doesn't cover all of their parts....\
The ones I bought were metal, NOS and matched yours perfectly.

If I am wrong, let me know, as I have half a bucket too.

My guess is that you have a European-delivery Duetto. The bucket shown in your OKP photo looks like a US-delivery style. The difference is that European cars had separate reflectors and bulbs, so their buckets had what you call the "cap and clip" that allowed the bulb to be changed without disturbing the reflector (and headlight cover). US cars came with sealed-beam headlights, so when a filament burned out, you had to remove the bulb-reflector unit it from the front - rear access wasn't needed.

750/101guy's suggestion of contacting OKP is good - being based in Europe, they are likely to have this style of bucket, while US-based sources are less likely to have them.

Note that a US-style bucket - even one from a squaretail spider - will function just fine, but will require more fiddling every decade-or-so when you need to change a headlight bulb.

I doubt you'll find those 2 piece bowls with the rear beam adjusters other than second hand (and even then!).....here in europe (Bertelsbeck, victorparts etc) they show the correct looking bowl with cap and clip in their diagrams, then when you click on the photo it shows a normal one piece bowl.

I know of one 'used' but decent carello bowl for sale here in Germany.....but it is missing the end cap and clip, so not much use to the OP (but might be of use to someone else..!)

101/105guy and Dr.G, I emailed OKP, but they responded that they do not have the bucket that I'm looking for.

veloce430, Thank you! I'll wait for the picture. But that's sounds perfect.

spiderserie4, Thanks for your help. I've bookmarked spitline.com for future reference.

Thats a rather unfortunate url. It doesn't translate too well into english.
