model 71 vs 73 Hazard flasher switch or 4-way switch

i have recently noticed my stock of used but good flasher

switches is nearly gone. i have parted out over fifty cars and

at least a solid third of them were model 71. the flasher has

6 wire connection. the model 73 has 8 and a resistor across

the back of it.

so my question to the EE's in the crowd, or the learned of

this clan that are good at such stuff, can a model 73 unit be

installed with minor wiring changes performed outside of the

unit to make it operate correctly when installed in the model

71 location. something like a pigtail harness that wires into

the existing plug.

anyone with some comments, fire away. by the way

i have plenty of model 73 switches that are new, just not

model 71 type. maybe they cross over the VW stuff.

LEft STALK/switch?


right stalk switch?

for signals?(flasher?) or for HiBeam(flasher?) ?

or are you refering to a 4-way flasher relay?
