Nova 2 Front Panel Bulbs

Well, I finally got around to working on my Novas again, and the first thing
on my list was to replace the burnt out bulbs on the front panels. I started
with my Nova 2. Several months ago I bought a bulb at Radio Shack to try out
and today I soldered it on to the Nova 2 front panel PCB. It worked, the
light lit up very brightly when the machine was in the RUN state (it was the
RUN light that I replaced). The light is *very* bright. It also gets warmer
that the others do, but it is a smaller bulb. It also seems that all the
other lights dim when it comes on, but IIRC, they always did that when the
machine was in the RUN state, before I replaced any bulbs.

Anyway, I wanted to double check before I replaced all the lights and make
sure of the voltage level. Does anyone know what that is? I don't have much
Nova 2 documentation, and the Nova 1200 documentation I have doesn't list
that information.
