I can dig that John, thanks so much for that photo, the '78 Schedmatic shows no fuse either. It's the text in the TSM for the '79 that mentions that fuse, perhaps they flirted to install a fuse for it in the panel back in '77 but thought better of it.
From the '78 TSM
"DIRECTIONAL SIGNAL SWITCH
The most frequest cause of failure in the directional
signal system are loose connections and burned out bulbs.
A flashing rate approximately twice the normal rate
usually indicates a shorted out bulb in the circuit.
If a three lamp flasher is installed in a vehicle having
only two lamp bulbs per side, the lamps will light but
will not flash. If a two lamp flasher is used on a vehicle
having three lamps, the too high current draw will cause
the lamps to flash too fast.
If there is no signal at any front, rear or indicator lamp,
check the fuse."
This being said, while I do have running lights, just no turn signals at the indicator and lamps this'd lead me to the incorrect flasher mentioned above. What troubles me is the same flasher has been in place since I first purchased this Jeep over 5 years ago.
When I get a chance I'm going to engage the circuit and trace the wiring from the fuse panel, column connector and lastly inside the column where I have other issues (haz button won't stay pressed in and ignition key has to be forcefully held in while cranking the starter, theft prevention?)
The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep

Record heat waves and floods only occur when we visit that area
