just replaced mine tonight. found it under the dash, just left of center. a little gold hued metal cylinder around an inch in diameter, maybe 1.5 inches long. It said "FLASHER" right on it. autozone had a compatible one, they had to find it for a 1969, cause their computer didn't show it for 1965. part number was 577 I think...

Welcome to FTE

The same turn signal flasher was used 1957/96: SF224.

1967 and later trucks have two flashers, one for the turn signals, another for the emergency flashers.

The emergency flasher is the same thru 1996: SF552B

SF552B can be substituted for SF224. It's a heavy duty flasher, it's used for the turn signals when a trailer towing package is present.

Another reason for using SF552B is....it's louder, which helps peeps that are hard of hearing.

First and foremost, welcome to FTE, family of Ford truck enthusiast. When time permits, suggest browsing some of the other forums, espcially the 'articles/specs' forum. The flasher unit on my 65 is mounted on the steering column, or brake assembly bracket behind the instrument cluster, or in the general area. Should be able to find a replacement at local Napa, or auto parts store. Posting pic of the circuit you may want to copy, usually only keep the pic's in the online photo album for day or so. Again, welcome to FTE!!

Prolly an aftermarket emergency flasher unit, or one retrofitted from a 1966, which was the first year Ford offered it.

What it's doing way over on the right side, I dunno. Ford installed the switch on a bracket inside the glove box originally.

Post a pic, please.

The blinker button is to flash your roof and trailer clearance lights. A trucking courtesy...

Four ways use a pull on switch with underdash bracket or can be installed in the dash and remote bezel light. for 61 through 66. The add on is a plug and play unit that installs inline with the steering column wiring.

"Another reason for using SF552B is....it's louder, which helps peeps that are hard of hearing." Yep this one i use as i leave the turns on for miles on non loud equipped units.......

The flasher relay. Its on a 1967 F-100
No such thing as a flasher relay was ever installed on these trucks.

1967: The T/S flasher is located on the backside of the instrument cluster. The 4 way emergency flasher is located adjacent to the radio, nestled into a bracket that screws to the dash.

Both flashers look identical, are round with two spade comnnectors, but the 4 way flasher is a Heavy Duty unit.

Both flashers were used for decades on Passenger Cars/Trucks/Bronco's and Econolines, are available from every autoparts store.

Good day-

I tried your link, no luck it states that your image is private.

I am looking into replacing my relay, instead of using a “load equalizer”
Do you have any info on the subject? So far I’ve found that the stock relay is a ?sf244? and sf-248-s sounds like the one for switching to LEDs.
I hope that you and yours have had a wonderful weekend!
Thank you in advance,
Reverend M

I am unsure about the location of your “blinker switch” from what I’ve read..

I thought I would share what Nellie has as she’s a stock F-256 aka F-260 or on the title she’s a F-2 (part tank/part fighter jet)
The hazard light switch is mounted from factory in the far right of the instrument gauge panel, directly below a quarter sized red bezel. You pull it out for hazards, red bezel flash’s with the signals, push. it in to turn it off.


Here you are.

Here you are.




The OP's truck is a 1965 F100 and from the looks of the pic it's 2WD. Your setup was used with 4WD, so the switch is in a different location.

btw: My post you referenced was typed almost 10 years ago (12/22/2008). I didn't begin posting parts catalog pics until 4/2013.
