Re: 1157 led bulbs
I recently installed white LED lamps from Super Bright Leds, #1157-W26-CBT, $20 each. Turn and stop light is at least as bright as the 1157s. I also installed 3-wire sockets from NPD to assure a good ground connection. This setup did not require a solid state flasher. They draw enough current to flash at a normal rate.
The only problem is that the lamps are cylindrical shape and the lower edge interferes slightly with the metal tabs extending from the socket to hold the socket in place. I bent the tabs away from the lamp base and also squeezed the rolled over end of the tabs. The tabs keep the socket in the mounting hole of the '69 but not tightly. I used silicone RTV type sealant on the socket to hold it in place. A thin blade can be used to slice through the sealant for removal. The RTV (room temperature vulcanizing) sealant is easy to peel off. The '69 housing only allows access to about 180 degrees of the socket base, so use the sealant on just that side.
Super Bright website is one of the few that provide illumination output rating.
