Anyone have a good source for these? Just put LEDs in the rear taillights/turn signals on my 49 3100. Searched forums but didn't see anything recent.

Ed,

Here are 6v LED flashers (it looks like they might be "ground sensitive").

I do not have first-hand experience with any of them.

Positive ground 6 volt? Look at Amazon ‘BV535’. Check before installation. I ordered several and one was wired incorrectly. Was real cheesy off shore stuff. A load resistor or regular bulb somewhere will be required.

For POSITIVE GROUND Vehicles only

Here is a 6v negative ground LED flasher.

Is the original poster looking for a positive ground 6v LED flasher?

Before we beat this to death if would be wise to wait till the original poster tells us he has a positive ground system or not.

"my 49 3100" would be 6v negative ground, unless it was changed to be like a GMC?
