    Just finished installing a new under dash wiring harness and a reproduction rally dash bezel in my 70 340 Swinger. Everything works but the dash lights. Also replaced the headlight switch. They worked before the install. Any ideas out there?

    Is this a OEM harness? Then the orange wire feeds the dash lights. Check it at the headlight switch.

      Check for burned traces on the back of the gauge cluster.
