Hi all. First post here. Helping my daughter with a 1985 B250 Royal she purchased a couple of days ago. She is re-doing the interior and I am making sure the mechanical and electrical parts are ready for a road trip she wants to take in a few weeks.

I have been browsing the forum and already learned a great deal about this van and some of the issues I am dealing with. The latest one to stump me that I have not been able to resolve yet is where to find a replacement driver's-side turn signal. It seems reproduction parts for earlier and newer models or for trucks are available but not for this particular model. I will be most grateful if anyone with a lead to a part would contact me. I daresay I can make a repair if I have to but it will be time consuming and unlikely to look as good as an unbroken original.

This is what I'm dealing with:
RH lens is ok

LH lens is not ok. Needs help!

Sorry for the photo links rather than embedded pics. I'm working on it. - EDIT! Sorted!

I don't have any Dodge stuff, so I can't be much help. However there are quite a few Dodge guys here. If you don't get any responses on this thread, post over in the "Wanted" section of the classifieds and you should get a hit there.

I would hit up your local junkyard. 80's conversion vans are usually in the yard. I know I have seen a few Dodge vans from the 80's very recently in my local yard.

This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Look for 79-85, they are all the same. Sometimes eBay comes up too

I have scoured eBay without luck - hence my question here. Looks like a trip to the junk yard may be in order. Hope they are open.

Thanks for the tip. No luck so far but I have not checked out any local scrapyards yet.

Have got a TON of other questions and would like to post a few updates as my daughter and I go through the various updates and improvements we are making. Rather than start a new thread for each technical question, I am going to make a single thread for the project. Probably in this same Dodge General Discussion sub-forum.
