Spare parts for lamp socket

| October 2009

I am trying for find three lamp sockets for my IH tractor panel lamps. The sockets “snap” into a 5/8-inch hole and have two leads off the socket. I use a No. 57 bayonet base lamp in them. I have found none locally or on the Internet. I have found sockets that would fit but they have only one wire lead. As the control panels are non-metallic, two wire sockets are required. My tractors are of the 1940-50s vintage. Anyone know who might have these?
