If you're sure that your dimmer control is giving full power to your dash lights, when you unscrew the bulb sockets from the back of the instrument cluster, they should accept a standard push-in bulb, availible from any auto parts store. I believe #158 bulb is usually used in dash lighting. I checked my spare W114 instrument cluster and it still has the original bulbs which are marked
OSRAM (maker) 12V (volts) 3W (watts) in case you need to compare specs on replacement bulbs.
(There are brighter bulbs that will fit the instrument sockets but they're usually used for exterior side-marker and parking light applications and may get too hot for use in the instrument cluster.)

Happy Motoring, Mark
