Anybody ever tried cobbling a turn signal flasher?
$30 to $40 for a turn signal flasher for my 115-chassis 240D is a little steep!! (Yes, already changed all the bulbs to the correct type -- it's a gunny-bag flasher for sure...) Has anyone ever tried grafting a "standard" heavy-duty parts store flasher onto the MB pin base? Seems like few minutes spent with Mr. Solder Iron & Mr. Dremel could buy me a really nice dinner! Any reason this wouldn't work? The '76 electricals were still pretty primitive; no computers & no cruise control on this baby!!
