67 Front signal light issue
Almost finished my 8 year resto on my 67 Camaro. I've managed to get all of my lights working, headlights, hi/low, brake lights, hazards, even the dash lights and licence plate light. Heck, even the horn works!
But I'm struggling with my right front turn signal. I thought maybe the flasher module was bad, the right one didn't work and would flash rapidly, errantly, and very weakly if at all. But just the right front turn signal.
So, I just replaced the old flasher with a new electronic 552 heavy duty one (and get a nice solid CLICK when the turn signals are on - sounds great). Left side works no problem, left front flashes evenly and nice and bright, as does the left rear signal.
But if I turn on the right turn signal, the right front blinks more evenly now (seems the flasher module has fixed the rapidness and irregularity), but it is still very weak (dim) compared to the left. And - the left front ALSO comes on too, (also weakly), so it looks like the front hazards are on (but dim) Right rear signal works just fine.
The hazards work, but again, the left flashes strong and bright, but the right side is dim and weak.
The battery is fully charged, the grounding on the right side signal looks clean and tight. Any ideas? I just can't figure out why the left front signal bulb lights up when the RIGHT turn signal is on? Bad switch, maybe?
