    Hi there I just bought a 1983 d150 2wd short bed 318. And I have found that the turn signals/flashers don't work and the wipers dont work everything else electrical is ok all the lights work and most of the gauges work but te gauges are expected so I've been told. The guy I bought it from said it had sat for a number of years don't know if that could have cause something. Also it didn't come with a radio. I was just wondering what to look for as far as wiring for a radio. Thanks mark

    does the wiper motor turn when you hit the switch? those bushings that connect the wiper arms get old and stiff and will shatter. Pain in the rear to fix, but cheap.

    No it does not turn when you hit the switch. The bushings look to be in tacked to.
