Lower right side of the instrument panel my A$$!!
I wonder who the dyslexic S.O.B. is that wrote that manual? First it says lower right side...try upper right side.
Then it says it can be removed by pulling straight down uh huh,'s pointing UP. physics tell even the most simple minded of us that you can pull it down when it's pointing up!


I took all of the dash panels off, pulled out the radio and the panel that has the heat/air con. switches. That allowed me to see (not reach, mind you, just see) the flasher.
It turns out you just need to be an anorexic midget with X-ray vision to change it.
I'm 6'0", 245lbs with glasses. No wonder I had so much trouble!
Where was the danged thing you ask? under the dash above the glove box, near the top, pointing up. It turns out all I had to do was take out 2 screws and move the fuse block out of the way, reach way up there blind and feel for the flasher...sure am glad I pulled the right one the first time!

Oh well, the rest of the day went good. I'm still tickled that I have oil pressure in the ½ton again!

Chad, who has to durn many vehicles to maintain!Cruisin

in 1949 you could raise the hood and see the back of the instrument panel. They call this progress.

Clod, I think it's time you traded that old car in on a brand new Studabaker.

the new cars get you back to the dealer for repairs.the old ones get you where you want to go.

No Clod you can fix them your self, just need the price of another new car in tools to do it that's all.
