reverse lights gone

I have a 68 with m22/hurst setup.

The reverse light switch is the original Muncie kind with the light/dark green wires that run up through the firewall.

They were working when I was testing dash lights. When I got the dash all squared away, no reverse lights.

I do have power on the light green wire when put into R gear.
Nothing on dark green.

Fuse is good.
Any suggestions.

Re: reverse lights gone

The switch bolted to the side cover may need adjusting or linkage rod bent.
Back Camaro to garage door.
Disconnect ign coil, turn ign sw on,
Crawl underneath, take 5/16" wrench with you, loosen the two screws and adjust switch and stop when b/up lights come on.
Tighten screws. If out of adjustment slot on switch, bend linkage rod from reverse lever to switch.
Don't lose hitch pin clip.
