'72 sport wagon turn signal issue

Howdy folks, hopefully someone has a solution for this problem as I have run out of ideas to try.

The turn signals on my '72 P1800 es wagon refuse to flash. The bulbs are all new/fine and the hazards work and all four lights flash. All of the connections seem to be fine and the wiring isn't cracking up or anything like that. I have tried wiggling connections and violently waving the signal arm up and down, both having no result. Sitting in the car and shouting at it has netted some satisfaction but also lacks in results.

I believe from looking at wiring diagrams that the turn signals and hazard lights share the same flasher unit, but maybe that isn't true. If not, where is the flasher for the turn signals located?
