Oh, this game...
I played it, but I don't remember what the outcome was.
I do happen to have one of the twist-lock sockets and couple of #37 bulbs in my stash, and they do fit the socket.
I don't remember if the #37's were the ones the Ford parts guy gave me that were "close enough" though.
I believe that #74 and #37 are the same size (both T1-3/4, 5mm x 18mm), the difference between them is the #74 is supposed to be brighter than the #37.
Then there is the PC161... which is the bulb including socket combo.
I *think* the proper Ford part is 5F9Z-13B765-BA, but they want an arm and a leg for them (this is bulb + socket).
Please update the thread when you eventually figure it out.
