67 RS/SS Camaro taillight issue

I am losing my mind with electrical gremlins. I am working on a 67 RS/SS Camaro. All tail lights worked except half of the brake light (braking only) on the passenger side wouldn't work(RS style brake lights so 2x bulbs for brake and turn on each side). All four socket housings were different (one was original) so instead of keeping it simple, I replaced all four housings. Now I have working running lights and turn signals, but no brake lights. I have checked fuses and switched wiring placement. Still no luck. Before I go and buy a new tail light harness, any ideas?

Thank you!

Re: 67 RS/SS Camaro taillight issue

As you've seen, the brakes and turn signals use the same filament.
You have tailights so you have good grounds.
Brake power is pink wire from fusebox to br switch out a white wire to turn signal switch and out yellow for left brake and dark green for right brake.

You might jiggle the t/sig lever and/or check continuity, disconnect battery, through t/sig through wire color. Or trace battery voltage.
