Default Turn Signal and Horn Wiring Problem

I have an 85 Ford F150 that had an ignition problem. I took the steering column apart and fixed the problem. Once I put it back together my turn signals stopped working. I noticed the fuse was blown for my turn signals and I switched the turn signal and horn fuses. They worked for a short period of time before the fuse blew again. I took the steering column apart again thinking there was a short and could not find one. Now the fuse for the turn signals continues to blow everytime I replace it and my horn honks when I turn the steering wheel if I put that fuse back in. Does anyone have ideas of what the problem is? Does anyone have a wiring diagram for my truck turn signals and horn?

Do you have cruise control?
This is from an '86 shop manual.

Here is a Pic I took of my turn signal plug (in case you took yours apart).
