The good news is you won't have to live with this vehicle much longer.
Changing the flasher was probably bogus or tangential.
Don't for get you need a ground to complete the circuit and rust is
i'm looking at 91 flasher digaram. it looks like it is kinda simple
system. if you have a multimeter, try to see the resistance to the
ground throug pin 16 of the flasher. if the turn signal is not on, it
should be large (over load-mega ohm). When you switch it to one side,
it should be 200 ohm (? i;m not sure about this number). try the other
side. if they are comparable then the system sounds ok. you can try to
take the bulbs out and see it becomes overload.

Actually, funny thing. See the guy isn't the brightest automotive mechanical
type guy in the world. He described the problem to me, I told him to replace
the flasher. He came back to me a few days later saying it worked for a
little while then stopped again. I told him to bring it in and I'd take a
look at it, he never did. Met him this morning, asked him what was up. He
said he took it to another mechanic (gasp!) and he told him he replaced the
wrong flasher. :) Replaced the hazard flasher and not the signal light
flasher. All is fixed.
