I previously ignored this tip, because the dead bulb example I pulled from
my 11/45 was labled OL-2. However, I pulled some more this morning and many
of them were also labled 1209219. That bulb is obviously equivalent, and it
happens to be referenced on the above website Wai-Sun mentioned. So, I may
hunt for some CM2309's, but more than likely I'll buy a bunch of CM7371's.
Since the intensity of the CM7371's will likely be different at 10v for a
12v lamp, I will probably move all the bulbs around so the newer different
intensity ones are in a single group. Maybe the old bulbs all in the address
& data lights and the new bulbs in the switch groups and status groups -
something like that.
