The meter light bulb in the Icom 751a can be replaced by opening the top lid and gently pulling out the old bulb from behind the display meter.  The bulb is 12v and about 0.25 amps.  You can find small 3.5mm or 3mm size bulb at Baileysfixit.com for $1.99.  Also, you might get lucky and find a little 3.5mm bulb like that at an auto parts store. 

Remove the old bulb and solder the new leads to the plus and minus wires.

Good luck.

Anyone know if you can do an LED replacement? HamRepair.Com changed the meter light to an LED on my Kenwood R-2000 when he aligned it. Looks great.

I think LED replacement with correctly sized current limiting resistor will work fine.  I just did an update to a Kenwood TR-9130 that had a burned out light bulb.  Two small 3mm white LEDs placed along the outer edge of the meter top surface pointing towards each other worked out great. 

Good luck,
