nice job.That's clever and I am flush with flashers. I considered a small magnetic blue flashing lights to set on hood or fender,not that i leave my driveway but would add to the machines beastly cool factor.

The new one may have been a defective flasher (it happens - just because it is new does not mean it will function properly ( like a bad spark plug out of the package)). Another thought might be that you have some corrosion in the taillight circuit (positive side or ground side) causing less than battery voltage to be available for the flasher to work properly at times. You say you checked volts at battery but you may have a lower voltage reading at the light with the light on to load the circuit.
Good idea to have the light flash - you could even add an extra switch in the circuit to bypass the flasher to take it in or out of the circuit so that the light could function as a warning light or tail light.

When I rewired my rail road crossing signal I used a 3 prong flasher. Some of the older cars used them so the dash signal would be on when the actual turn signal would be off. Works great as an alternating flasher. Used back up lamp bulbs to replace the original 18V bulbs.
