Default ERA 4-way Flasher Location?

Does anyone know where ERA typically installs the 4-way flasher switch? I supposedly have the option on 824, but I haven't been able to find the switch.

They used to be under the dash, on the driver's side. They used to look like old pull out switches. You know, like the headlight switch on an old Oldsmobile. It could just be a simple switch though, that's how mine is -- but I did mine myself. Also, check the glove box too.

I've checked both places--nada. Even talked to Peter this morning. He's going to check with Doug tomorrow.

Hmmm, could have gotten overlooked. It's not a difficult modification -- one step up from "beginner," I would say.

The "classic" American 4-way switches for aftermarket are no longer available. I seems that nobody's adding them to their 1962 Chevys anymore... The latest one I've found comes out of England so the mounting and wiring is different.

Found it, and passed my brake and light inspection! The switch was tucked (very neatly I might add) up by my left knee in the foot well.

One step closer to SB100!

Just bought ERA 804 and am starting the process of getting it registered in NY. Hoping that switch is in 804 but I couldn't find it. Any pictures of it by chsnce?

If you need it to register, it's not a difficult installation. I outline it here: Four Way Flashers -- How To with Pics
