    Wiring my 36 Chevy Streetrod from scratch and am at the #6014 Wagner 12V headlamps with three #12 wires, no old connector to hook to and feel really stupid because I never learned which blade on the back of the bulb is high, which is low and which is ground. Any help would be appreciated.

    I tried searching archives and internet sources but no luck.

    hook it up to a battery using just two wires. when both filliment come on, youll know the blade you did NOT hook up to is for ground. once you find that hook negative to it. then hook positive up to one, then the other. to figure out which is hi and which is lo... proccess of elimination

    Process of elimination works best, but off the top of my head: Left is ground, top is high, right is low looking at the back. Again, nowhere near 100% sure but that sounds familiar.
