He moved it to the "1964-1974 Tempest, LeMans & GTO Technical Discussions" section.

Do you have a test light to see which wires are doing what?

re:tail light help

no i dont. the wiring has been a pain this entire time. Ive restored just about everything except for the wiring. i bought a whole new wiring harness but decided to keep the original. the problem is is that they cut the conectors off from the tail lights and now i cant figure out how to wire them back up. thats why i was hoping to maybe see a pic of how its supposed to look but i had no luck finding any on google or any other seach engine.

Meanwhile.....the tail light = the brown wire......the LEFT stop/directional light= the yellow wire........the RIGHT stop/directional light = the green wire. The light green wire is for the reverse lights.....

much better if you use a new tail lamp harness, which plugs into ribbon harness at the back of the seat. otherwise, you will always have poor connections, either crimped or soldered which will not hold up long term. also having new sockets is a big plus.

Thanks a lot guys for the help. We pretty much have it done I just can't get the turn signals to work. They blink when I have the emergency lights but when I turn them off and try to signal I get nothing... I did have to buy new sockets because the originals were cut off...
