the maroon one looks like an inductive timing light and uses 120 volt to power the bulb instead of the weak 12 volt that mine had. the black one just hooked to the plug and plug wire, bet you have to use that thing when it's pitch black out! maybe you are on to something here...we should start an old tool thread.Bob

Thanks, I found these at a thrift store and bought them just because I had never seen them, and could tell they were old school. I'll have to give them a try. Someone told me that I'll have to find the spring type attachment that goes in the clip for the red one.

If you can't find one of those "spring things" just slide the boot up the wire to expose the {wire-to-plug} connection & attach it there. A mechanic I used to work with would push an ice pick down between the boot & wire & attach the lead to the exposed section of the ice pick. It worked fine.

Thanks, I don't have the spring so I'll give it a try the next time I need to adjust timing.

I am not sure if you want to know what brand they are but they are both sold by Sears. Allstate was Sears trademark brand in the 60's. I know that Sears sold the other light too but I am not sure how old that one is. This might help you find more info and or some literature for them.
