Does anyone have a source for these 5/16" 12 volt dashboard indicator lights on the lower helm of a 38

Ask Mark LaCroix at Inlet Marine at Reed Point - he sourced a full set of dash warning lights for my 4087 at a little over half of the cost of those from Olympic, and no doubt they come from the same supplier. It's unlikely that they will be a stock item, but he'll have them in 24 hrs or less.

I also like to try to buy supplies from these folks, even if they are the same, or slightly more cost than West Marine or Steveston Marine. My rationale is that they are local, and really try hard when I need them most.

If you find them, I would be interested in some replacement bulbs and the plastic amber covers as well.

Thanks,
Jeff

Click on 12 VDC
Scroll down to the 5th and 6th set.

You want 5/16" indicator lights with the rear spring clip to hold them down. Choice of 3 colors. I bought the yellow ones.

I got mine from the original mfgr, Solico. They are at Solico.com. I believe I got samples for $5 each.

If you are good with a soldering iron, you cn get the bulbs for those at radio shack. Comes in a 2 pack for about $2.50. Did that on my 28 as I could not find the part either.

I think these might be the lights, at least they appear to match my 4550.

It's the series 24 model that looks right to me. You can get them in an LED version which is nicer, in my opinion.

Mine are the stick up series 18. The 24's are the flat ones.
I like the LED ones too.

I spoke with Solico yesterday. The correct part number is 1812-1-12-21620 for my 1986 3870. My lights are raised and flat, although I have seen flush ones in newer boats. However, they do not sell retail. Their minimum order is not cheap. I asked about samples, but they did not have any to sell. They checked their retail outlets and there were no suppliers on the west coast.

I ended up with a yellow one from our local electronic store.

I replaced my broken ones on my 38 with Radio Shack 12v indicator lamps. They come in red, green, and amber and they are not expensive.
