Flashers

With our multi-bulb tail lights, What flasher number should be used for the turn signals and four-way flashers. I assume they are different due to the differing loads.

Thanks.

Dave

I think a 223 will work but sometime you just have to experiment to get the flash speed you like.

Do they not work now? What is there? Might just try a new replacement.

They do work now. Both are #522. I thought it odd that both would be the same number. Seems the 4-way flashes a little fast but certainly acceptable. I thought about replacing them (just because) now that my dash is all apart.

So, I posted my question just because I figured they would be different.

I opted for the Plasma LED's from WCCC, but they require a different flasher due to the lower current draw. They are BRIGHT. Talk to Scott @ WCCC- he'll fix you up.

I looked in the 68 electrical assembly manual and it gave no value for the flashers.
The NPD catalog lists a 224 323 and a 552 for turn signal for $2.95
Emergency flasher # 552 for $2.95
68 GTCS repro 13350-200A $104.95
Hope this helps

Dave,
The turn signal switch is prone to failure as it was designed to support only two rear taillights and not six. The LED lights are much brighter and take a lot less draw and preserve your turn signal switch. A win/win all he way around. You can even install them in your front turn signal buckets and they are a lot easier to remove when needed. If you have never pulled a light out of a 67/68 front blinker assembly, you will know when you try!!

Interesting. The Turn signal switch was replaced by the prior owner a few months ago. Maybe I should go with the LEDs. Now the question is what type of flashers do I need to get if I go with the LEDs?

Scott at WCCC can guide you to the correct flashers to support LED lights.
