    My dash lights in my '79 K10 are kinda dim, especially in comparison to my column mounted tach. I am wandering if I could replace the dash bulbs #194 with #168 bulbs, I understand that the #168's are brighter. Are #194 correct for stock?

    168 is what should be in there. They are 3 Candle Power. The 194's are 2 Candle Power. Are any of the bulbs blown? I usually find when the dash lights are dim, there is a bulb or two blown.
