Post need turn signal switch & advice --help! : )

Hi,
still looking for a way to get emergency flashers/hazard lights capability on my '65 Chevy. A while ago someone (I think it was Hotrodit) suggested I try Summit, but I searched their site and couldn't find anything.

My next idea is that maybe I could find a 67 or later (or whenever they started have flashers) turn signal switch from a tilt steering column like the one i have, and maybe the thing will just pop in.

Basically it's an amazingly simple thing. I just need a part that will tell both turn signals to go on at once.

any ideas? leads on where to get that 67 turn signal switch? thanks for any help.

only way my dumb *** can see doing it is replacing your steering column. if it was me and that's all you want to have i would forget it. your car's never gonna stall anyway, right?

Way out, not sure what you want but mooneyes sells the switches theres the link below with the switches, if that doesn't work just go to their site and to interior then others.

thanks guys! Yeah I know it may be more hassle than it's worth, or the part may be cheap plastic, I've just really missed having hazard lights from time to time.
I checked out Painless, and they wanted Buku bucks for those wiring harnesses.
thanks for all your advice dudes!

You may also try an early '70's GM van steering column, it has tilt, flashers, but still no ignition on the column. Wiring should be the same as your column with the added wires being for the switch on the emergency flashers. PACO

Wayoutcat,
Autorewire is most likely going to give you some good advice on hooking that up.
But, i suggest you get a heavy duty flasher instead of a 552. This way your hazards will flash at the same rate no matter what happens.

eg. burned bulbs, high resistance etc.
