Got everything working except headlights…could be because they are 12 volt but more likely something mixed on jumction block or poor ground…any ideas where I can get 6 volt headlight seamed for this car? Thanks

Use a volt meter or test light to check for power at the headlight sockets.

If no power, then work backwards from there until you find power.

Wiring, dimmer swtich, headlight swtich.

Well got everything run and correct to diagram …all works ok..the headlights were not working due to a really old dimmer switch..when I disconnected on side they came right on…my only issue now is when I pull the panel switch on..the reading light and panel lights come on for awhile but then the fuse pops and turns it all off..the previous owner ran a 20 amp fuse between the light switch to panel switch wire..this was not on diagram…so maybe there were issues before and that’s why they ran an inline fuse? Idk…all the feeds are on correct switches and grounded….I noticed the panel switch has three pull out settings ..the reading light only comes on with final pull….I also noticed the reading light bulb was extremely hot…burning hot..so maybe the mini bulb has too much wattage…the bulb reads 55. Sf.5 I think…tough to read…tks

For headlights, I use these in both my 6v and 12v cars and are polarity independent. They are LED so put very little load on the switch and wiring, I have several pair that I bought recently but unfortunately I see that they are currently on back order.

A poster has added a Napa belt for the 115C and 120 in the parts x-ref. You might check it out and see if the number is good or if still available.
