headlight replacement(bulb)

I own a pre-MTD Troy-bilt snow blower with an accessory light that is round and has an on off switch mounted in the housing .The housing is a hard rubber like substance and there is no obvious way to change the bulb. The light lens is marked GE which leads me to believe that it may be a sealed beam. The housing has stamped into it the name "SPEAKER USA" and nothing more. Any ideas on how to remove the bulb-beam would be appreciated. The original Troy-Bilt light kit part # is 1745785. Also would like to know how to determine what the bulb-sealed beam replacement would be .

Thanks ,
Marc

The guy at the MTD parts #!(800)269-6215 ran the Troy-Bilt part number for me but came up empty. He gave me this number for Strawn Sales and Service (814)938-3927. The people here are a great resource. The guy I spoke to knew what the part looked like immediately,told me how to use a hair dryer to heat the housing to get the bulb out and said the replacement was a GE4411.This conversation lasted no more than 20 seconds.

If you want to add a light to your blower or need to repair one you already own call this guy. He knows his business.
