most older blinkers have a element that heats/cools to give you a blink effect. overtime these elements can weaken due to fatigue. might be time to change it.

i may be wrong though as i dont know if fords use a system like that. you could make a circuit with a 555 timer with Astable operating mode. then you could set how slow or fast you would want it.

In the fuse box under the steering column, there is a relay bank. I'm pretty sure it is labeled. Top left iirc.

replace flasher unit in fuse box near steering column - normally marked flasher - turn flashers on and you will hear it and be able to feel it - make sure new flasher has same markings for which terminal is which as there are several different types ...........

This is a long shot. But in case changing the relay doesn't work, you may have a short, which can take a lot of time to find. Like I said, a long shot, but in most cases the new relay should fix it.
