    1979 280zx Flasher unit needed replacement before JapFest next week.
    Old unit taken off was a Lucas 8FL Type 53.
    I was only able to get a 12V 4 x 21 W Max 97W flasher unit which I suspect is a hazard flasher unit which is twice the size but at least had spade connections.
    It seems to work fine but I just want to check if I need to put a lower rated unit on at some time, the carparts place showed a 47W Max unit but none in stock.
    Any thoughts :confused:

    There shouldn't be any problem, if anything you now have more capacity on the flasher circuit in case you wanted to tow a trailer with many many indicators on :)
