I have searched the web and several model web sites including ML but I can not find how the M48A3 headlights (with the large round brush guard) were wired. They do not appear to be connected through contacts in the mounting post like the M60 series so I presume there was some external wiring. Does anyone have any photos or descriptions of how these lights were wired? Thanks.

You're welcome. I've just sent you a TM drawing that shows the hull connector.
