Part number for Signal flasher in 57 Eldorado ?
« on: February 08, 2018, 08:42:22 PM »
I am trying to find information on the turn signal flasher for my 1957 Eldorado.

I have looked in the service manual but do not see a reference to a part number.

Can they be found at the local parts store or is there another part number out there that works as a direct replacement ?

Thanks

I would not go with the 550. The ones I tried with my 57 caused both signals to flash at the same time. Tried a couple of nos ones from ebay and they worked perfectly.

Rock auto's prices seem really good. I'm looking at blue carpet and and blue door panels and they are half the price of everyone else. What's the catch?  Anyone ever use them?  If you order both at the same time can I assume they will come from the same dye mix and match?
