Did you "turn and/or twist" the headlight switch?...

.....and the more I look at those underside pictures the worse it looks. It sounds like you don't work on your own vehicles, so this could get quite expensive, quite fast for you.

:iagree:

I installed PS on my 68. It has been one of the better mods that I've made. Much more pleasant to drive. Brakes are manual but I can live with that.
