I'm installing relays for the headlights in my 1972.  The single high-beam white wire in the engine compartment serves both left and right headlights.  However, there are two low-beam wires, the left is yellow/black; the right is yellow (or white)/blue.  The question:  Should I splice the two low-beam wires before and after the low-beam relay?  If not, then what?

Thanks!

You can splice the two together after the relay.  The low beams are fed from two separate fuses if I recall correctly.  Since you are redoing some of that wiring (inferring from your post) i'd just use one of those wires to trigger the relay and cap off.  Many possibilities.

I did a column on this--adding a high beam relay on a 12 fuse roundie; drop me an e-mail with your e-mail address and I'll send you a copy.

 

It also covers the same job on six fuse cars, and IIRC, squarelights.

I'd like to get a copy of this as well if you still have it.
