I am hooking up 2 lights to the rear of my 53 Farmall Super A and wanted to put a Flasher unit in the line...The Only 6 Volt Unit I could get in stock at NAPA was this 3 Prong design...Can anyone tell me how to wire this up correctly??? the Tractor is 6 Volt Positive Ground.
The Flasher Unit is 6 Volt with 3 lettered Prongs : L P X
What goes to what letter???? This darn thing cost $15 and I don't want to fry it.

From what I have gathered, and this is just second hand information (sorry, couldn't find a diagram for you) The switched negative from the key switch would go to the "X" terminal, The "L" terminal would go to the light and the "P" terminal will remain unused. The case of the flasher should be grounded (to the + terminal of the battery in your situation, or any good ground on the tractor) This set up would make the lights flash whenever the key switch was in the "on" position. Like I said, this is second hand information, so I would appreciate some backup on this LOL. It is also suggested that a 10 amp fuse be installed in-line. Hope this helps!

Nice job! And you did a very good job of explaining the installation on the video too.
