I need a complete headlight for my 77 and I was wondering if anyone has tried the 7-inch headlights they sell on eBay. for 30 bucks shipped It looks interesting but I don't know .

I have one, and like it. The high beam doesnt add much, so aim carefully. It is a DOT approved light.
Mine have this led layout.

When you say complete are you saying you need headlight bucket etc.?

I dug through my stash pile and found a complete bucket minus the adjuster spring.
Im now playing with the turn signal wiring. When I hook up turn signals with the oem rectangular flasher they come on but dont flash.
When I use a round flasher fdom a 79 the buzzer comes on but no front light?
Fun fun.
