Hello Mark,
I have a Kenpro KR5400b which I believe are similar. My bulbs burned out a 
couple of years ago. The standard treatment here in VK is to replace them 
with high intensity wide-angle LEDs. Mine are orange (amber) and they light 
the dials very well, and should never give trouble. You have to put in some 
dropping resistors but they can be mounted on the small circuit board that 
carried the original tubular bulbs.
