WELL... THE DIRECTIONALS ON MY 67 JUST STOPPED WORKING...THE FLASHER IS GOOD AS THE 4 WAYS WORK ..THE BRAKE LTS WORK..TAIL ETC......I DID NOT SEE A FUSE DEDICATED TO DIRECTIONALS? SO I AM THINKING ITS THE DIRECTIONAL SWITCH AND CAM INSIDE THE STEERING COLUMN. I DID HAVE TO HOLD THE LEFT DIR. DOWN FOR IT TO WORK SOMETIMES..SO I SORT OF HAD AN IDEA THE CAM WAS GONE... WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK????/ OH I DID CHECK THE CONNECTION AT THE PLUG TO MAKE SURE ITS TIGHT

Does the turning signals and emergency flashers use the same flasher?? Check for another flasher for the turning signals.

Yes, there are two flashers. One is mounted in a clip located near the top of the driver's side radio side panel.

I can't remember which is which, but if you've checked the one on the fuse panel, check this one too.

The flasher in the fuse block is only for the hazards - the turn signal flasher is mounted just above your right knee on the radio side panel. :)

The little broken leg in the pic is the cause of your first problem (need to hold lever manually). As to the now complete failure, and given the functionality of flashers you have noted, I would be inclined to replace the switch. The 1967-68 units were scarce (big $s) two years but they are being reproduced and cost about $70.00. While you're at it you may wish to replace the upper column bearing.
