Fuse is good. Hazard lights flash with strong click in flasher but nothing in the way of turn signals, not a flicker.

At the light switch, check for battery voltage to the Light Green/Blue wire. If voltage is available, use a fused jumper to connect this with either Green/White or Green/Red and note if turn signals work.

Thanks, I did that and they worked.
I noticed that the bullet connectors where corroded due to our damp NW Washington climate. I cleaned all of them and with a little help from WD40 everything began to work on it's own.
How did they ever drive these cars in England. Lol.

Technology for vehicles before the 80s are nothing to shout about. It is nolstagia that keep them moving on.

Electrical components/gadgets then aren't high tech too but one good thing about them is that most components are serviceable and some cleaning and lubrications works wonders.

Have a nice day.
