Gauge cluster bulbs

Does anyone know where I can find the light bulb holders that screw into the back of the gauge clusters. The jeep I have was a parts jeep and they are all missing for whatever reason. Is this a dealer part or might someone sell them separate. I noticed they are similar to the ones in my chevelle gauges maybe it's something I can find from a vendor.

Edit:
I there are 8 large bulb holders and 11 small ones for the turn signals et cetera. http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...1.3170&next=50

that is a link to 3 types of them that super bright leds sells, but what ones go where?

any idea what bulbs fit it...there are the big twist lock holders that go around the speedo, tach, and the other 4 gauges. Then there are the smaller twist lock holders that go to the blinkers etc. anyone know which fits which?

I just measured the holes and it looks like the large bulbs are the T1.5-X and the small bulbs for the blinkers etc. are B8.5D-X but i'm not positive.

the ones i mentioned are the 74 bulb in the twist on holder already, an all in 1 type deal. I am missing those plastic holders so I need them too, I think that bulb is right for at least some of them...194 is what a lot of the actual bulbs are

i just swapped my cluster bulbs to LEDs, DO NOT GET THE ONES I DID. They didn't fit at all and I ended up modding my gluster with a dremel to get them to fit. And because i had to widen the holes so that the new bulbs could fit, it literally rendered those plastic bulb retainers useless and i had to solder the wires from the LED bulbs to the plastic circuit paper on the back of the gauge cluster. A real PIA mod. Now for pics...
