[Healeys] LED Running/Stop Bulbs

I use them in my Bugeye and my Harley Davidson.   They are very bright.  Without stepping on the brakes the light is brighter than when you step on the brakes with the old incandescent bulbs.  Just make sure you buy white LED lights.  Red will hardly show up with the red lens.  As far as the Harley.  When I go that one the LED was facing the front of the bike.  They had to make one special that was mounted 180 degrees from normal.  I just installed them and they work fine with no resistors.Mike MacLean

  Thanks, Mike.  These look pretty solid; methinks--since these is for nav/stop lights--they should work without resistors?  
  Are these actually brighter than incandescents?  Are the stop indications brighter than normal running lights?

  The correct incandescent bulb is an 1157, and I've found lots of LED 
  1157s on the 'net, but they're all neg. ground and my cars are both pos. 
  ground (and I'm not interested in changing to neg. ground).  Anyone 
  found pos. ground 1157 red bulbs anywhere?   I'm aware you need to 
  increase the load with resistors, or change to a solid state flasher.
  * anyone know why you shouldn't use an LED here?  I ran one for a while 
  and noticed no issues, but Moss and others are adamant you shouldn't do it
