Re: Twin Bus - '91 Carpenter w/ 7.3L International

I've been called many things, but rarely a gentelman. Let's not go setting the bar too high for me.

I got my led bulbs from this guy on ebay. They come from china but mine arrived in a week or two.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1x-BA15S-1141-1 ... 2a143681c8

The bulb in the picture replaces an 1156 single filament incandescent bulband draws 2 or 3 watts if memory serves.

Re: Twin Bus - '91 Carpenter w/ 7.3L International

My side-by-side test showed the LED bulb giving off noticeably more light than the 12 watt incandescent bulb. Not a huge difference but a great deal considering I'm getting more light for 1/4 the power. I'm sold on LED lighting and when the prices come down I'll be converting my house lights too.
