Always something - no high beams
I was checking the lights today to get ready for inspection next month only to find out my high beams don't work. The problem is in the lever in the steering column. I checked the switch on the column, and it works. The rod that actuates it is where it is supposed to be, but the lever doesn't seem to have any resistance. I guess I did something to it when I had the column apart last month. I haven't had to use the high beams since then, I guess.
So anyways, I decided to just put a floor mount switch on it instead. I picked one up for a 78 C-10 and it looks super easy to mount up. Stand by for pics.
I'm also thinking of getting wiper controls for an older truck, the kind that is in the dash instead of on the column. I think that will make things easier to deal with.
