OK folks, I will try again. I know of spring compressors being used on large USA cars and trucks, but what about a Datsun 610? Has anyone used the OEM#25336 or STECK#21910 door spring compressors? Are they small enough to use on a Datsun sedan? Which is the best?
OK, got it. I was unsure about removing the socket. It did not appear to be the usual push /twist socket. I took a chance and the socket was a simple plug in, plug out. I put in a 9 LED Pilot brand LED. That really helped with the knob illumination. I am a bit concerned with excessive heat. I had previously bought LEDs from Superbrights. Those LEDs got too hot for me so I switched to Pilot. I have had another nine LED plugged directly into the terminals of the battery (and inside a closed clear case) for over an hour and the "bulb" is definitely warm but it is not at all hot.Does anyone out there have experience with using an LED as the light source for illuminated knobs?
