Instrument Illumination Sockets???

Are the illumination bulb holders in the 1981-85 instrument panel different from other wedge bulb holders?

On my '85, they are blue, and none of the other holders I have seem to fit.




Stealing pictures from other threads.
1974 circuit board appears to have typical 1/2" socket in the upper left.


1984 (deckroid's)


1978

My best guess is the lugs are wider.

On my '83, I'm pretty sure (I'll have to dig through the harness in a bit to confirm 100%) that the warning lights (Brake, 4wd, etc.) are push in sockets, not the twist in like the turn signals and gauge lighting. With the gauge board and twist sockets in front of me, the twist sockets will not fit securely in the warning light holes.

Agree. Some of them - the indicators - have 5/8" dia holes.

I tried using what I thought was a standard socket for the 1/2" holes and it didn't work. Maybe I've got some notes from when I took that photo. Only missing one, but its annoying.

I'm sure I have some extras in a spare harness. I'll dig through my pile of wiring in a bit. Shoot me a PM and I'll let you know what I find. If I've got what you need, I'll throw it in the mail tomorrow.
