Cracking Eyeballs

I am waiting on some parts to arrive, so I decided to start working on the Morse Docking lights.  They are designed to have the entire eye-ball assembly replaced.  I managed to get it open, but wound up breaking the light before getting it out.

The light is a GE 4419 Marine floodlight, Par36, 100w with a 25hr service life.  This means it pulls around 8.5A running.  I want to replace it with an LED, but I’ll have to get this assembly apart.

The eyeball is press-fit together and the silver ring is what holds it together.  I managed to pry it apart.  The light itself sits in a rubber ring and that is held in by the silver ring which is pushed in behind it.  I have not quite figured out how to extract the ring yet.2016-03-28 18.35.39 2016-03-28 18.35.42 2016-03-28 18.35.45 2016-03-28 18.35.50
