    Hi,
    Was wondering if anyone has tried these lights almost the same dimensions as the original units?

    B07NVH1FG9 they are on Amazon for £14 a pair

    Best Regards

    Graham

    Graham if there is an indicator I think there has to be a resistor put into the circuit to stop them flashing like a strobe.

    I'm using LED's all round - you need an LED flasher unit to go with them

    Don’t forget the hazard flasher too.

    When I rewired Wee Beastie I used a three terminal flasher unit. These have a timing chip in them and they flash no matter what. The old two terminal thermo electric units required a load to work but the three terminal electronic ones do not.
    Formally DonSayers on here.
