Here is the link:


Miniature Wedge Base Bulbs - Super Bright LEDs


scroll down till you see:

Instrument Panel and Gauge LED Wedge Base bulbs
T1-3/4 and T1-1/2 bulbs with standard LED or High Power SMD LED, also available without the Twist-Lock holder. 12 Volt DC operation.
#74 Replaces: 17 18 37 70 73 79 86; #24 Replaces: 286 2721


Select 74-xHP3 in white (third tab) You'll need 5 for the cluster.
