Lightbulb Edson pedestal compass lights

I have the Edson pedestal installed from the factory. I have noticed that the lights on the compass do not light up. I have power to them so it looks like I need to replace them.

Any one know of any direct replacements for them?

Re: Edson pedestal compass lights

Probably this one, but depends on compass type.

And this page has options for upgrading to LED and diagrams that may be helpful.

Re: Edson pedestal compass lights

Back in the days of incandescents I used to be able to get the bulbs locally, but I can't remember if it was the local hardware or Radio Shack. Danforth used to use a pretty standard "wheat grain" bulb.

Re: Edson pedestal compass lights

I bought a pack of 12V LEDs and installed two of them in my Edson pedestal with a Ritchie compass.

Something like this; https://www.amazon.com/LAOMAO-Bulbs-.../dp/B06Y1X2BMY

Re: Edson pedestal compass lights

Thank you for the replies. It is a Ritchie F83 and I was able to buy a kit from Ritchie. Actually, When I went to order from Ritchie's website, it stuck at the shipping area(?). I actually bought them from West Marine. They have two kits, green and red. I chose red. I also picked up those LEDs from Amazon, so I have enough for my lifetime plus any great great grand kids lifetimes.

For future reference, the Edson folks are very accommodating if you have maintenance questions or need parts.
