If for some reason that unit doesn't work- there are magnet mount flashers available with their own battery- handy to move between machines, too.

Thanks to those who took the time to give me some good advice. I went out to the shop this morning, for whatever reason I hit the switch, and the flasher started working. I shut it off and turned it on half a dozen times and it worked.
So I tidied everything up, and when I went to try it again, it didn't work. I used an ohm meter to check continuity, and I had it. I even checked for 12 volts and I had it, but the darn thing wouldn't work. Got a new flasher, and bulb, and that didn't work either.
Of all things, what I did find, was that the fender on the tractor, was not making a ground to the tractor. I installed a short ground strap between the two, and it works like it should.
Before installing the flashing light, I ground the paint and primer off the fender, so the light housing would ground to it. Apparently not.
So if anyone else has this kind of problem, check your grounding. That may be all it is.
