Default thanks Bill.

got the flasher in the mail today , thanks Bill for it. I was waiting for my PT appointment so I could not resist tearing it apart while I waited for the clock to tick down. found it about like I expected. took it apart and cleaned all the corrosion from under everything and wired it for a test run. it about a second and half between flashes and we had it running some 3 hr as we messed around with the 58. now what to do with it. guess we could run the grill lights of the 58 with it. but that's kind of over kill. the pictures are here if your interested in them http://www.dropshots.com/jer57747/da...05-13/15:59:54

You are very welcome, my friend. I am very happy that you might be able to use it, that is certainly better than throwing it away, isn't it?

That is why I bought the new flasher! In addition, I just don't have your mechanical ability.
