I second the high beam switch. My '71 would "Fade to Black" when switched. Actually direct to black! New switch and all was well...Brian

If it's a fuse and you replace and it keeps blowing, chances are it's grounding out somewhere.

dumb question: where is the high beam switch? I pull to the first detent and the running lights come on. second detent kicks on the low beams. What switch kicks on the highbeams? I tried twisting the knob but that doesn't do anything either. I know its something pretty simple but i figured I'd just ask and make my life easier.
