Slow turn indicator.

A few days ago, I posted a request for ideas on where to look for bad ground,
etc. that would cause LH turn signal to flash very slowlly compared to RH,
and to slow down even more when electrical accessories (headlights, brakes,
wiper motor) were switched on.

After considerable searching with and without my multimeter, I found my
problem: the front signal bulb!  Apparently it was the wrong wattage/voltage.
It worked, but was not allowing enough current flow.  It was not a corrosion
problem either since wire brushing the base of the bulb did not help.
Swapping bulbs instantly corrected the problem.

One day I'll learn to check the easy things first!
