    I put two LED taillight bulbs
    in a '67 Sport Wagon along with a Flasher with ground that was supposed to work with incandescent bulbs, in the front and LED in rear. It does not flash at all. Any one have any ideas?

    Thermal flashers (Al can type) rely on the current draw of the incandescent bulbs...LEDs draw a lot less current and may not trip them. Change the flashers out to solid-state (TTL) type, and they should work with the LED bulbs.

    What LED's did you use? I am going with sequential tail lights and I just bought the Sylvania Zevo red LED 1157's. I also bought the TTL flasher.

    I did buy a Sylvania for the rear that was made in Taiwan, and it fit OK. I wanted amber for the front , the package said made in Italy. These would not fit, they would not go in far enough to lock in. I think I found a Amber, Taiwan today that will work. The car is a "67 Sport Wagon. Good Luck.
