I too have an 85 LTD with turn signals that gave up the ghost. The flashers are under the seat. one for the turn signal and one for the 4-way. Thay are the same so you CAN switch them for testing purposes. The angle sensor is inside the steering stem. And I was just told the cancelling unit is acually behind the battery bracket and not where my book says. The Clymer manual has a fair trouble shoot guide but does not tell how to test some of the indevidual componants. Thats the book I'm seeking now, supposed to be a Honda pub.

I'm pretty sure the 1200 seat comes off the same as the 1100, in which case:
