Re: 68 rs going to 67 rs electric hideaways help please

First, double check that all limit switches and relays are connected properly. My webpage http://retro-electro.net/FAQ.html has pictures of the correct relay wiring as well as a list of the correct limit switch wiring. Next, check the wiring against the wire diagram here: http://www.pozziracing.com/Media/67rswire.jpg . If that does not work I would follow GM’s RS troubleshooting guide, which I can fax to you if needed. By the way, I know Rick’s First Gen makes a 67 RS harness which fits in a 68 bulkhead, is that what you used?
