That is a tough item to find. I searched for quite some time and finally I bought some on ebay but still had to machine them down to the correct height.
Look for something that is about 7.5 mm diam. X 3.5 mm tall with a thin chrome ring around the bottom.
I got my from Well Gain electronics on ebay.
I did a search for "red pilot light".
Good luck in your search.

this seems a bit small. i think they are about 9mm x 10mm.

something like thes but cylindric. I think these are similar neon lights like the ANH green ones.

That is the red pilot light from Radio Shack. I used that chrome ring on my lights from Well Gain. That ring is perfect. The Well Gain lights are cylindrical. I am searching their site now. Maybe call them and ask if they have the red pilot lights, size about 7.5mm diam.
I will see what I can find out.

7.5mm diam. is accurate. Check screen caps and photos, as well as photos of Gino's ESB and ROTJ belts and you will see that they are very close to this size, if not exact.
