Turn signals - column unknown

I have a 6 wire steering column that I'm trying to figure out which wire is which.
The column doesn't have a hazard button and I can't seem to locate under the steering wheel a horn wire. So is it possible to have 6 wires just for blinkers?

I've tried to match up the colors but I can't seem to find a ford,gm, or other with the same colors.
Off the top of my head, white, orange, blue and 3 greens(2 lighter then the other)

If I switch the directional to the right, I can find 3 wires that have continuity. If I switch the directional to the left, I can find only 2 wires that have continuity.I tried to figure out on the right position to find a common that works with both the right and left with no luck.

The column came from ebay, its old! No tilt, chrome 1 1/2 pipe with some old school guts (switch)

Any suggestions? 6 wires for blinkers or would it be 5 and 1 possibly for a horn?

green to front park , turn lite to brighter element wire ,,right side
yellow to front park , turn lite to brighter element wire ,,left side
black to flasher output
blue to flasher center terminal ( 3 wire flasher ) Had emergency flash system
