I have no turn signals and no stop lights. It's a 65 without emerg. flashers. I have wiring diagrams and test tools. The diagrams are vague as to what actually happens within the TS switch. Can anyone describe (using wire colors) how things are supposed to work (such as, with the left TS on, you should have voltage at the purple wire leading to the muffler bearing)?

That happened to me on a 67, (on one side), I changed the bulb TWO times, then went after the wiring harness, Soooooo, 3 days later, I bought NEW bulbs, you guessed it the other bulbs only "looked" good but were not. My lesson. :p

Ok I'll take a stab. Have you confirmed power to the t/s? Caution my memory may be off on colors. Check at the plug from the column to dash. Green should have power for the turn signal. Blue should have power for brakes (step on brakes to activate switch). For brakes orange/blue & orange/green should return power to the taillights.

In the 6 pin connector, with the connector dis-connected, probing the harnes side of the connector (not the steering column side), with the key on, there is voltage on the yellow wire and the blue wire. With the brake pedal depresses there is also voltage on the green wire.

With the 6 pin connector connected, and the two pin connector disconnected, there is no voltage at either the green/orange or orange/blue wires in either side of the connector.

The yellow wire should be power for your horn. If you aren't getting juice out the orange wires it sounds like there is problem in the column harness or the turn signal switch. I'd suspect the actual t/s switch is broken. Pull the steering and check the t/s switch. If it looks okay retest at wires as they enter and leave the switch. That will tell you if the harness or switch is bad.
