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.
