Sizing is the thing, how do the bulbs position, in a hole in the meters or just against them? If just against them, any 'grain of wheat' type will do, they will probably be powered by 12V and be about 68mA but it's better to fit bulbs rated at 14V, they won't be too bright and won't heat up as much as a 12V and risk melting anything and blowing due to heating, I just bought a pack of 50 from China on eBay for 99p with free postage!

The bulbs just 'hang' around the back of the meter, Well they do on my dead 210.
