Single vs double element.  
Dont assune what was in there is correct.

I put the correct bulbs when I got the car. At first it was just a bad flasher. I replaced it and it got my turn signals working. Now thats the only thing that doesn't work. Hazards work but not individual turn signals .

That almost always indicates a bad turn signal switch or a broken lead/bad flasher can from the turn signal flasher if brake lights work.  Here's a little tip: when installing a turn signal switch, put black electrical tape on the back side to cover the rivet heads.  Those rivets can touch metal and short everything out, ruining the TS switch.

Let me check your shorts!

Oh really? Man. That sucks. I was not aware of that. I just removed the old switch with a new one. So even if the hazards work I still could have shorted out the turn signal end of it? My wiring is a rats nest. The wires to the switch don't even match the wiring on the car. It would not surprise me if the previous owners replaced it with some cheap knockoff, the didn't take very good care of the car. I did an ohm test and I am only getting 12V to the two most right pins with it hold it as a frowning face  Haha

If the connector is wired correctly, only the yellow wire on the far right (top) should be 12V; the bottom wire is the outgoing horn and should show 0V when the connector is disconnected from the turn signal switch itself.

Do your brake lights work? The brake light circuit runs through the turn signal switch. Also check the brake lights when the turn signal switch is switched to both sides.

I'll have to post a photo of it. Although I may just pull the wiring and start the restoration project of mine.
