Tail light / blinker issue

Alright I am dealing with a weird wiring issue in my 68, and in need of any and all help. Here is the problem, both filaments in my tail lights light up at the same time. If i push on the brakes and when I turn the lights on. Also if I click the blinker to the right, both right and left tail lights blink, however if I click left, only the left blinks.

I have changed:

Headlight switch

Brakelight switch

Turn signal switch

Tail light bulbs

and checked the wiring for damage

Another thing worth mentioning, when I push the brake pedal, my instrument cluster illuminates. I am at a loss and would really like to solve this.

Thanks for any and all help,

Deja vu...

When you push your brake pedal do the headlights come on also?
