My understanding of LEDs is that they should run cooler so I was a bit surprised.

Also, I can't remember if the bulb pins are 180 or 150 degrees offset?
180 degrees. And LEDs *should* run cooler, except when they contain a resistor to activate a flasher relay. It would be better to buy ones without the resistor, and just get the electronic flasher relay. Or put your own resistor in-line, just away from the plastic lamp housing.
