What year? On my 67 I had a bad floor dimmer switch that caused the same problem. Pete

Make sure your headlights are grounded, the ground should be on the radiator support next to the voltage regulator, good luck...MM

Those little bolts and wires around the voltage regular corrode. Thats probably close. I thought that too. But did you check your switch before you put it in?

Pete,
I took the dimmer connection apart, cleaned the terminals and snapped the connection back together...I can see again!! I don't think that connection has been apart since 1969. Thank you for your help. Thank you all for your suggestions.
