I took off the lenses, the front bulb is TS1129, rear bulb is T63. I added a ground wire, no change. My electrical system is 6V. See no need to change it. Now to locate a 535 flasher.

If you don't, and you tend to hang your arm out the window, you can feel a buzz on your arm where it touches the window opening. Every time the bulbs light up. Especially, if you're like me and keep your hand on your turn signal switch so that you remember to cancel after a turn. Don't ask me how I know.

Yes Buy a 535 and 4 new 1129 bulbs also. (NAPA)...........T63 no good. Not bright. 1129 may not fit rear housing (vintage arrow). It's taller and larger diameter, So try the 1129 you have in that vintage arrow light.

Not sure what "added a ground wire means" or where you added. Just make sure socket inside is shinny metal. Make sure it's housing is clean bolted to chassis/body. Probably OK since they have all been blinking, albeit fast.

Update

Changed all the bulbs. Did not fix problem. Made a different mounting system to steering column and checked ground. Did not fix problem. Rewired the switch to accept a 535 Flasher. Lo and behold, problem fixed.

Thanks for your input

Rick

More info. I have the original instructions on how to install the 1939 Turn Signal. The switch can be configured for either 4 or 2 bulb installation. The fog lights I used were 1939 Chevrolet Fog Lights Part No. 985444 Single, 985445 Double. Price $4.25 and $8.25. Turn Signal Part No. 985257, $11.
