Re: Number of Combination Meter Bulbs & Covers?

Right, but the truck and most of the bulbs are over 20 years old and I'd prefer to just replace everything. For example, I also had an issue with the "D" indicator. I think the bulb burned out then came back to life (likely the filament reconnected again). The illumination bulbs get more use than most of the others, the only exception being probably the "D" indicator, but I'm going to play it safe and replace everything. If I don't, with my luck I'll put it all back together and have another bulb burn out by the end of the week.

The best bulbs I've used, Sylvania 194LL, are ridiculously expensive at the auto parts store ($6 for two) but if you can find a 10 pack, they only cost around $.80 ea. I briefly considered LEDs but I haven't found a decent cost to quality ratio to justify them. The cheap ones are unreliable flickering junk and the good ones are cost prohibitive.
