Thats the thing i dont see the flasher...i think it may be missing because why would it be so hard to find? And then trying to find the empty connector it goes to..ugh? Not sure.There should be wires coming from the steering column somewhere.
Follow them and one of them should lead to the flasher.
I will definitely look again and follow the orange wire. Sure not an easy spot to see or change that part that is for sure.Its up way higher than what you have shown in your picture, follow the orange wire from the steering column as JIM4 suggested. If clipped in position it is behind the cluster above the alt/oil/temp lights.
Thanks, appreciate it... yep im hoping its just the flasher but if not then move forward to the next part.Welcome to the vertical headlight Galaxie fan club!
If a new flasher doesn't work you might check the Neutral Starter Switch, looks like one of your leads runs into it (pic). And just looking at the "modification" on your NSS , that could be the weak spot.
