Hello

I have some question about the electrical system in 1976 Torino Wagon

I have googled, but didnt find any general info about which bulbs to use in those cars. The tail-/flash-/headlights are ok, 21w and 21w/5w, but the sidemarkers was new and "modern" for me

Is it ok to use w5w-bulbs in the sidemarkersockets like this:  https://bit.ly/3hnob87" rel="nofollow - https://bit.ly/3hnob87

Also the taillightassemblys fastenings-"nuts" by plastic are needed. Is there any shop that sells these like the one on this photo, and the related screws?  https://photos.app.goo.gl/qoqBufcKB8gQj3Bo9" rel="nofollow - https://photos.app.goo.gl/qoqBufcKB8gQj3Bo9

I am not sure if that bulb you linked to is correct.  It appears correct, but I don't know if the specifications are the same as a US bulb.  The side markers use a 194 bulb, which is once like this:

Compare the specs to the European variant, and if it is the same it should work.  Or just order them from RockAuto.

As for the nylon nuts, I don't know of a source off hand.  There ware similar ones in my grille I was still able to source from a Ford dealer several years ago.
