<VV> Fw: Direction flasher revisited

Typical for GM at the time. The easy to find flasher plugged into the 
fuse box became the 4 way flasher and the regular turn signal flasher 
got relocated to above the steering column in a simple bracket. This led 
to a lot of people replacing the easy to see flasher but not fixing 
their turn signal problem.

Why two flashers? Because at the time, flashers were based upon number 
of bulbs flashed. So the 4 way flasher was a different part number than 
the regular one side of the car at a time flasher.

The bracket is there in my car but no flasher, so it must have been moved or has fallen out of the bracket. I'll look for it again.

> I feel rather foolish. I can't locate the directional flasher in my '69 . It was clicking very slowly, so I wanted to replace it, but no matter where I looked or felt, I could not find it. II have disassembled a lot of Corvair dashboards, but for the life of me I can't seem to find this one.
