Turns out it was a bad original Lucas flasher unit.  The unit looked brand new. 
 I have a picture of the original one in my late 81 TR8 if anyone wants one.  I 
put in one from my TR6 used parts bin and it works with a normal blink. Hurray. 
 The other part goes in the glove box for the Lucas originality museum ð???

Also, the hazard switch itself can be the cause of a problem.  Try exercising 
the switch a few times.  That fixed the problem on my TR7 one time.
