Tails & Turns Question

So, this is a real newb question but I have searched and cannot find the answer. Im building a custom harness for my car as Im doing a lot of custom stuff and have a question regarding how the tails and turns work on a 67 RS. There is a dim setting for all of the bulbs which I am assuming is for running lights, and then a bright setting for each bulb which I am assuming are used for brakes and turns. Im also assuming that two of the lights function as brake lights and the other function as turns? Also, which lights are the turns and which ones are the tails?

Re: Tails & Turns Question

On an XX57 bulb, 1157, 2057, or 3057, the upper element is the brake/turn/hazard illumination.
The lower filament is tail/parking light only.
A the turn signal switch, there are three different power inputs, and only one output per side.
Hazards, brakes, and turn signals.
