high beam/low beam vs. low beam/high beam

I finally got my headlamps to work on my 69...it was a bad ground that wasnt even hooked up....the headlamps work, and I hit the high beam and suddenly noticed only the left was on high and the right was still low beam....so I hit the floor switch again and now the highs went on the other side and lows on the left....I have lights...its just that one is operating as a high beam at all times.....Im hoping for a wire got put back in the wrong postion on the connector to light bulb .....any thought?

I think you nailed it. Just make sure you switch the side that's on low beam when the dash indicator is on.

Yes just swap wires on the headlight plug. You can stick a small screwdriver behind the terminal and it will push in the tang that holds it in the socket. You might have to bend the tang back out before you insert it back in to hold it in the connector.
