Default Solid State Flasher Turn Signal Wiring Help

Hi Guys,
I had an old Sparton turn signal that died on me. When I ordered a new one from Memphis Equipment they send me a solid state turn signal, wiring harness and the flasher box. I need some help getting everything converted over. Anyone have the step by step instructions on how to do this? Any advice is appreciated.

Up at the top under the link for Online Maintenance Manuals, there is a link for how to convert the turn signals from old style to the solid state.

There are a lot of good tips and things listed on that page and it is my go to place first when I need to looks something up.

Treat the solid state flasher box very nice. A single stray electron from an inadvertent ground will fry it.

Immerse yourself in the land of A, B, C, 468, 20, 21, etc.... Once you start thinking in that language it is an easy conversion. At least that is how I approach it each time I have done it.
Remember if you didn't build it you can't call it yours.

Glad that you were able to accomplish this.

On a twist though, my truck is a 1969 but started life as an M-726. The data plate was missing but there were just too many signs of how it began its journey. It didn't have a hood-mounted air cleaner. It didn't have a governor. But it did have an electronic turn signal. I wanted my truck to reflect the two trucks that I drove whilst in the army. So, being the renegade, I converted my truck back to the old style distribution relay box with all NOS parts. To my surprise, it worked and no wires smoked.

Thanks for sharing all of your thoughts. And a special thanks to Ron Boltz for his tremendously helpful, clear to read wiring diagrams.
