Im trying to find out what it takes to make my 89b ifr legal. Ive read my manual, but am still not sure.

I have a king 89b with kni 520 indicator, but on my panel it is placarded as vfr only.
After trying to do the research, ive come to the conclusion that I dont have marker indicator lights attached to it, and the database needs upgrading.
Well, my kma24 has marker signals, and my 89b doenst say anything about vfr only on startup.(read somewhere, but cant find now)
So, do I need external marker lights, or external arming switches/annunciators for approach mode, directly attached to the 89b?
Or, can I get away with a new database at a minimum?

Thanks for the help.
