This was a quote I made from another post with respect to the reverse lights. This wasn't totally agreed upon at the time, but I see power conservation was an issue. I haven't got around to switching my connectors as 1960 cars made in January still had the back-ups come on only when the park-headlamps are on. BTW, swapping the generator to alternator, although belt slippage is a little problematic, was a great improvement. I can read the instrument panel at night stopped while running the A/C or heater and lights.
