Default Led Tailights and Blinkers

Just changed over to led tailights and blinkers . Now the blinkers are not working correctly.
Do you have to change a flasher or make any other changed when changing to Led ?
Where is the flasher unit located?? Any help would be appreciated. It is a 83 SB.
Thnx Dave

I had to use a LED specific turn signal flasher, that I purchased through Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Terminal-Signa...signal+flasher


On my '82FC35RB the flasher is located in the front overhead compartment above the windshield on the left side, I had to stick my head inside the compartment in order to see it.

Hang in there Dave. Someone will be along to give you advice. It might be as simple as putting a resistor in line but I'll leave that up to the experts.

Cheap, down, dirty, & wrong way to do it - but it works
leave a bulb or 2 in it
Better to replace the flasher

Yes, there was a set of instructions that came with the LED Flasher.
