Is the wire leading to the light socket a single strand or is it a double strand . If it is single that would lead me to beleive that the bulb should be a single filament bulb . Not a double filament . If you take the bulb out of the socket you should be able to tell by looking into the socket which bulb will be needed , as the bases on the bulbs will be different . Thats about all I can think of .
I do remember that option as we had a 66 when I was a teenager . My first thought would be to check for the ground as all the light sockets had just one wire , not 2 or 3 . Make sure the trim piece is grounded to the fender as the socket will ground to it . Did that light only come on with the turn signal ? Good Luck and it is hot in Minn. also .
I am not sure what you are refering to when you say relays , but there are only a few things that can go wrong with the whole system . I own a 65 Parklane and have dealt with some of these issues in my 64 Monterey . The 65 service manual has this to say ;
TURN INDICATOR LIGHTS INOPERATIVE 1. Burned out bulbs , or loose sockets . 2 . Burned out fuse . 3 . Loose or broken wire from ignition switch to flasher . 4. Defective flasher . 5 . Loose or broken wire from flasher to turn idicator switch . 6 . Defective turn indicator switch . 7 . Broken or shorted , or loose wires from switch to lights .
If any of these are your problem , you should be able to find parts at http://www.macsautoparts.com or google Dennis CarpenterAuto Parts . And remember these are not Mercury only parts . They are shared with Ford and Lincoln , which makes the hunt much easier . Sorry about the delay in an answer , but I was out of town for the holiday weekend .
If you need more help do not be affraid to ask .
