Does the car have the guide matic headlight system?

Yes

Rotate the knob on the dash eye to the off position and see if the high beams go off with the foot selector.

If not, disconnect the 3 pin connector at the guide matic relay under the dash by the steering column, and route that wire harness to the dimmer switch. Plug in the rerouted wire harness to the dimmer switch.  You have just now disconnected the guide matic system from the cars headlight system.

Halogen lights use more power. So best is to use a relay and take the current straight from the battery.

This drawing should help you on your way if you don't have one available:

I sell the relay wire harness for 70.00  but you need to figure out why the high beams are staying on first.

HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 6 Comments

Hi.

Update:

I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…

7 vacuum valve-need a good one or someone to recondition mine

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 15, 2018 at 5:44pm 12 Comments

So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together). 

In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…
