Tim,
As long as the flasher body doesn't touch any metal the polarity will not matter

I had my Carb rebuilt by National Carburetor and reinstalled it. Works and looks like new.

The 6v negative ground LED flasher unit will supposedly work in a positive ground system, but it was suggested to make sure the flasher unit body is not grounded. (eBay seller: uakti572012 from Sweden)

Hi Tim,
Disregard my last post regarding 1 resistor. It would work but your flasher would be clicking all of the time regardless of your turn signal switch position. Your lights would flash when they were supposed to but the flasher clicking would probably drive you nuts. Another senior moment blush .

Anyway, you can wire your two new resistors like this . The new wiring is depicted in red. I based this on my Signal Stat 700 turn signal switch which has an output wire for each corner. If your switch also has 1 output wire for each corner then you can connect one resistor to one left wire and one right wire. In this case each resistor should have approx. 1/2 the resistance of the turn signal filament in one of your old bulbs. Resistance is not critical but should be somewhat close to maintain the original flash rate.
Hope this helps!
Best regards,
Les

Thanks, Les,

That is what I planned to do.

Your illustration is worth a 1000 words.

Best regards,
Tim

You guys need to be discussing this in Electrical where it can help others in the future.

Took the spare tire part off the frame,going with a latemodel truck or mini van cable spare tire mounting system. Might see if I can hook up a electric motor to one.
