Low Light Headlamp Parts

Hi. I asked this question in a post in Electrical but no replies so thought I'd try here.

Can any one tell me what the rubber fittings should look like that fit into the rim - what have you used?

This is the inboard pivot that bolts to the grill panel bracket.
Is there something missing here? I think there should be something here to locate it in the slotted bracket along with the bolt?

Is there a parts list drawing for these lamps?

Rubber on mine was just a bit of thin wall rubber tube over the bent bit of metal. Enough to be a slack fit in the hole in the chrome ring.

Thanks Rob - Do you think they are original fitment?
