Hi,

For sale is a complete set of 67418-00 holders with bulbs (unsure if bulbs work), as removed. I bought the set to install in my 140 but decided to go a different route.

50$ plus shipping, located in Montreal, QC, Canada.

Have a good look at the bulb socket close-up. They are the same bayonet-bulb sockets used from the 30's on in tube radios. The only thing that holds them in place on the instrument panel are the two little wings with tiny tabs. And you have to push in a little to disengage the bulb so you can rotate it a little to remove the bulb. The contact for the bulb is a blob of solder spring-loaded to the base of the bulb. And the design is such that the bulb envelop fills most of the hole that the socket is installed in. Always secure the socket with something like a hemostat gripping one of the tabs when you try to change the bulb, or else you will be fishing for an errant socket behind the panel. I speak from experience.

Also, as has been noted here, there are two kinds of dimmer circuits, and in one the bulb socket is isolated from ground. Don't let the socket touch the inside of the panel hole.
