67 RS/SS headlight wiring

My 67 RS/SS headlight system has been rebuilt, new motors, new relays, bulbs, replaced one limit switch, the others check OK, new 10 amp breaker. It has the original wiring harness (s) that was taken apart, cleaned, re-taped, contact connections cleaned re assembled. The headlight doors open, lights come on when headlight switch is pulled and go off when the switch is turned off. The headlight doors close when the Ignition switch is in the on or accessory position all as it should be HOWEVER the headlight motors keep on running after the doors close.
As stated the limit switches are working and the system shows ground on the bottom side of the switches (all of them). Pulling the wire off the top side of the offending limit switches will stop the motors turning, in fact just pulling the passenger side top wire (on close side) will stop the motors. My system is wired per the very good instructions provided in the archives and the tests suggested followed as best I can understand them (David Pozzi's postings). Most of the rest of the wiring in the car is now working though it has been out of the car for 30 years. There are no un-accounted for wires in or around the front wiring of the car?
I am at my wits end and don't know where to turn for assistance. Previous posts have had little response, I know it's a 67 original and probably not many are being worked on but I remain hopeful for some suggestions. hipirn

I have a trouble shooting guide on my web page but for some reason it's down. PM me with your email and I'll send it to you in a zip file.

Re: 67 RS/SS headlight wiring

The “junk yard dog” is what I call my car. When I brought it home it was a non rolling shell that had been in Mexico. It had been customized with a fire ax, wrecked, burnt, striped, gutted, used for target practice, and left for dead. Over the last 20 years I’ve been putting it back together with mostly used ( junkyard) parts, some swap meet parts and now stuff from epay, craigs list, and reproduction that wasn’t available 20 years ago. It was also titled to a junkyard in San Antonio. I thought the name fit.
