This UP229D / 260 flasher is new, NOS, Aluminum can.  This flasher has black lettering on the can as pictured.  An Ideal brand flasher, round and tall in shape and in mint condition.  It is a 3-terminal flasher with the terminals in the normal configuration.

 Echlin flashers information sheet lists the following uses:

1941-55 Chrysler

1955 Desoto

  Many of these NOS flashers have 2 or sometimes 3 different numbers associated with them, and many times lettered on the canister.  All these number are correct for identification. The 2 0r 3 different numbers are just the manufacturers parts numbers that get changed from time to time.  I do not know why.  They call this “superseded numbers”. 

 These instructions are always on the box flashers come in

X — Power (hot lead)

L — Load (to switch operating lamps to be flashed)

  P — to Pilot indicator lamp (this connection may be omitted. Flasher will operate properly either way)
