    I need to figure out what order all this hardware goes to secure my kc's to the lightbar. Each light has 2 rubber disks, a washer, and big metal disk, and a bell shaped metal piece. Does anyone have close ups of the base of your lights? It would be awsome if somebody could snap a pic, or just tell me what order.

    I would say it goes:

    rubber, disk, rubber, and bell piece on top.

    But that is just a guess.

    See the metal disk on top of the stack (there is a washer on top of that, but i'm not talking about the little washer). I'm wondering if there weren't origionally 2 metal disks per light. The disk is dished out. Odly enough, I have 1 extra disks, which leads me toward the conclusion that I really should have 8 metal disks iinstead of 4. Does anyone run lights with this mounting setup, or is it something from the mullet days?
    thanks,
    James

    Check out www.kchilites.com There should be a parts breakdown in their technical section.

    I think it is missing 3 of those big disks. I will just get some large washers at the hardware store and maybe it will accomplish the same thing. KC doesn't seem to list that part on their website as for sale.
    thanks,
    James

    Send them an email. Their customer service rocks! They can probably get you the parts that you need.

    Thanks guys. I emailed KC asking about the disks. If I can't get ahold of any easily, I will just try to substitute in some really large washers.
    thanks,

    They rebuilt 2 lights for me a couple of years or so ago. The lenses were separating from the reflector. I shipped them the old lights and when I got them back EVERYTHING had been replaced except the housings! :) New lamps, bulbs, wiring, cable sheath, and all the hardware. Yep. I'm a satisfied KC HiLites customer. :)

    I'm not surprised that they're hooking ya up...
