With a relay like my 69-vintage one, you can emulate the operation of the later system (and of the modern Hella relay that I originally used) by removing the wire from the KBL terminal and connecting it to the 49a terminal. If you do that, the dash lights flash together with the indicators with the ignition off, and out of phase with them with the ignition on.
I think that the 68-70 flasher just provides an intermittent ground for those lamps..
Thus, on the late systems (71-3) I think you will find that the phase of the dash bulbs changes when you turn the key ON.
