Since flashers are ran in series on 6803's will #906 LED flasher replacements work? I figure they should but I know that normally if one flasher dies then none in the series will function. Just wanted confirmation from someone who has tried it before ordering them.

These are what I want to use:

Thanks!

I have some inexpensive Pinball Life 906 LED flashers in my 6803 Escape from the Lost World. Seem to work fine.

I used standard "Ablaze 1 LED #555" bulbs from Pinball Life, 0.27 each in my Hardbody I recently worked on, worked absolutely perfect.
I did use a variety of concave and frosted style.

I have Comet flashers in my Party animal for 5 years now.

I have yet to use a flasher led in any of my machines but am going to start transitioning over as bulbs burn out. Just picked up a special force I am revamping and going to do full led conversion including flashers.

In your opinion do the led flashers match up to incandescent? Better, about the same, lacking? Just curious what you guys think.

Just a matter of preference really. LED flashers seem a bit brighter and work well.

IMO, even on standard non-flash bulbs in the flash circuits, much like you see in automotive tail lights, faster, brighter and should last much longer, and use MUCH less current.

People still use/buy those style LEDs? I throw them away when updating games LEDs.

Any flasher should work as others stated
