  Kinda funny....the brake light feed should go throught the tyrnSignal 
indicator switch, inside the switch, it directs the voltage to either the 
flasher or bypass the flasher.

  Don't see why you'd need a seperate wire for an 1157 (I'm guessing) bulb?

oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
