I recently bought a nice one of these radios on the 'bay, works fine but found one of the two dial lamps is out. There is no nomenclature that I can see on the lamps themselves. I then bought a the Sams book that contains this set, and, frustratingly, they show the lamps on the schematic, but don't give the type or part number either in the schematic or parts list. Would anybody have any info on the the lamps or a replacement type that can be used in this set? Thanks.

Hello Kevin.

Measure the voltage at its connections. - watch that you don't cause a short!
Shoot up a photo of the lamp along with its dimensions.

Posting photos to a forum thread...

egg, thanks for the reply. I'll set about the photo and voltage measuring project when i get the chance. The neon? Dunno. Didn't notice it before. I'm guessing static discharge protection for the front end?

Somewhere I have the factory service manual for this radio. I will try and dig tomorrow for it!
