RS Gauge Bulb Sizes

Can anyone tell me the total number and size of the bulbs, including the turn signals, in the dash gauge of a '68 RS. I also need to know what size the bulbs are in the console gauge. I think that there are 4 of these in total. I am looking at replacing the old dull white lights with blue LED's and need to know this info so I can order the right ones.
Thanks for the help,
Mark

Re: RS Gauge Bulb Sizes

If you go with the LED's make sure you get the lights with built in resitors, or you'll have fun time with blown leds. I just got back from a show where they had the the ones I'm telling ya about they were 5ea for 5.00 not bad, and they were the same size as org bulbs.
Needless to say I got a hand full for my RS wired them up in my dash & relay boards to test the relays. works great hope you find some. If you do use leds in the dash you'll need to wire up the mad entp volt meter by there diagram, which helps volts stay steady to elemnate that dim look.

Go to www.whitegauges.net and take a look at the bulbs they have for sale. They say that their LED's are direct replacements for the originals with no added hardware needed. I ordered ones for the dash & console gauges and hope that they work without any problems. Let me know if you think the bulbs on this site will be a problem in a '68 RS.

Thanks,
Mark

Thumbs up Re: RS Gauge Bulb Sizes

I think you will be very happy. If they seem way to dim then, I'll send you the diagram of how to wire your dash to allow full steady volts to keep em bright at any Rpm ect. It's a rather easy conversion that deals with the volt meter side of the harness, in other words your dash is last in line to get power, if you do this conversion it has it's own direct power supply.
