76 dash bulbs
« on: July 21, 2014, 09:28:45 AM »
hey y'all was just wondering if anyone knew what bulbs were in the instrument cluster of a 76 pinto. I was looking to change it to led, but I don't want to pull it apart twice to do it.

As I found out the hard way, LEDs do not dim with the light rheostat. It takes special circuitry to do it.  I would suggest replacing all lights that you don't ever want dimmed, like turn signal, high beam, and engine warning lights. Illumination lights I am keeping regular bulbs.
