flasher relay F100

Hello everyone, I own a 1957 F100 with barely 6000 miles on the clock, but when I put the blinkers, my stint flashes quickly and then it slowed down until it stays on, he does not want to blink, someone could show me a photo of the original relay that I could order because I think they have a faulty relay......poor man from Quebec...

Welcome to FTE!

Take the one you have to NAPA or any other parts store and they should be able to match it up for you.

Your truck has only 6000 miles on it originally? That's awsome!

No such thing as a flasher relay on these trucks, just a flasher.

The T/S flasher is about 3" long, round with two prongs on it. The same one was used from 1957 into the 1990's.

Mine blinks really fast too. It acts like a bulb is out, but all 4 work. Is that just how they are, or is mine on the way out?

return on photobucket, I just added a 1,000-mile warranty certificate which has not been used and is written with a pen, it is original.

This truck was purchased by the fire department of the Islands of Orleans in Quebec as a vehicle for first responder

Nothing short of amazing! It would cost 50,000.00 to get most of our rigs in that condition, and then there's the labor!!! I guess they didn't salt the roads on the island, and there had to be some firemen that were in love with that truck over the years. You have an absolute treasure there.

Such an old man who worked for the provincial highway that found in the garage, he did the first part of the restaurant and I did the rest.
I communicate with people of this municipality and would be proud to see him again.

at first I wanted to make a HOT ROD but the sheet metal is original and also the smell, I decided to keep it intact as it is.
