I just went out and checked it. I turned the knob..... nada. Okay, so tomorrow, when it's daylight, I will get my stash of bulbs out and replace it. Thanks, Ryen.
I took the 2 back light bulbs for the speedo and pulled the guts out of the socket. Picked up a couple of small LED's and threaded the wire into the now hollow socket. Put a little epoxy into it to keep the LED's in place and now I have a nice extremely clear light in the same color as my radio. You loose the dimmer feature but its a nice crisp clear light that lasts virtually forever and they only cost me $9 for 4 lights in whatever color you like.
well, that sounds cool...... now I have to see if I can actually do it. I don't really care about having a dimmer for the speedo anyway, so that's a real possibility. Thanks!
also new to this.....how do you "pull out" the speedo from the dash to get to the lights?
Are you working on a flat dash or or 73 up super?
On a curved window super you simply pry under the speedometer with a small screwdriver and pull it towards you. If the radio happens to be out you can reach in and push it out from the backside.
