Sounds like the flasher is no longer flashing. I'm not sure exactly what it looks like or where it is on an 80's truck, but in general they are round or square, about 1"X1" and located under the dash. On my 92 its tucked up under the dash a ways on the drivers side but still attached to the fuse block under the dash. There should be two of them. One for the turn signal and one for the hazards. Occasionally I've seen the hazard flasher on the back of the fuse block instead of the front with the turn signal flasher. Try to remember where the clicking used to come from and go to that area as the clicking is from the flasher.

You can also test the flasher by exchanging it with the hazard flasher since MOST of them are the same. If your turn signal now works but your hazards only stay on then you need a new flasher.

Check the fuses under your dash.
I blew the fuse for my dash lights, which blows your blinkers.
Hazards worked, blinkers didnt.
Also, check to make sure you don't have any shorts in wiring on your blinkers.
If you just did the mod to put them in the operating light housing, then you probablly blew the fuse.
