I've got a 1979 Internatl/Wayne with a similar switch. It turns on the top flashers, but they also turn on by a switch on the main panel. I don't understand it either. I think it might have something to do with the stop sign, which is no longer there.

Probably something with the stop sign or such.. do you still have your stop sign?

I have an international so cant help.. I found some mystery switches, and when I opened the door, then flipped the switch my stop sign started coming out and flashing!

I was so glad mine was still hooked up and working.

naw, i dont have the stop sign no more. some which a way the bus slipped out with the stop sign-that bumper guide bar that swings out and all the flashers were on the bus when i got it. they usually paint the flashing lights black with spray paint before they sell them. i made some round plates for the holes where the flashers went at work from aluniem. (i cant spell it either) i through all that stuff in the dumpster at work. i did leave the ( SCKOOL BUS ) sign above the windshield and the rear one. they got light bulbs in back of them you get to from the inside and they light up when you turn the lights on. :P looks pretty cool at night. ill probably get hasseled about it but who cares, im perfectly legal. new tags-new plates-gmac insurance-and one valid drivers licence.
