Charlie – thanks for the LED info.


Question:  would you know of sources other than Jeff Zorn / LBCarCo, for those of us who have had their fill?

I don't think you need to change out the sockets.  Check out Classic and Vintage Bulbs website at www.classicbulbs.com <http://www.classicbulbs.com> .  He makes a lot of the bulbs that will fit old British cars.  The USA dealer is Little British Car Co., lbcarco.com.

Actually, I just checked the first link and it goes to lbcarco.  If you can't find them there, email Jeff Zorn at lbcarco.  He is an MGA owner, so he will know exactly what you are talking about.

I am converting all of the lighting on my 66 BJ 8, other than headlights, to LED bulbs.  So far, everything has gone fine.  The improved lighting/visability is great.  I now discover that the speedo and the tach are screw base bulbs, not the wedge type bulb of the fuel and combo gauge.


Does anyone have a source for an LED wedge bulb socket that fits the speedo and tach?  Or is it possible to get a screwbase LED bulb that will fit the existing sockets?  Moss does not carry a socket that fits anything but the high beam and alternator warning lights.  


What "size" is the actual screw base.  On line there are varity of bases and i can't tell what i need.
