Hello all, I'm somewhat of a newbie here. Recently I rescued my Kenwood KA-5700 amp from 30 years of basement exile and now have it once again featured in my system. I always loved the cool blue glow of other brands' lights, so I located a supplier for blue LEDs and swapped them with the non-working incandescent lights. Then I purchased a KT-3700 tuner and ordered blue LEDs for it also. They are the wedge base variety with rubber/plastic sockets. The problem I have is fitting them into the socket holes. The sockets just don't want to seem to fit in no matter how much I push, twist or wiggle. The holes (4 total) are 1/2" openings. The sockets are a tad bigger, but I'm guessing they're meant to be that way to stay firm in the holes once inserted. The old sockets are also a tad larger than 1/2". I tried using some spray-on plastic lubricants, but that didn't work either. Any suggestions? I'm attaching photos of the new and old lights and the hole. Any help would be appreciated!
