Got the Kit

Gilly / Dr. D
Thanks for your council (new log-in - my last one got zapped). I got the kit for the park light socket (halogen). The kit contains 2 new sockets and bulbs; 2 six inch, 4 wire harnesses with large german connectors; small black connector covers; and 2 spare head lamp bulbs.

Here's my question... the new socket has 2 wires a brown and gray with spade connectors on the ends. Both these wires are about 4 inches long

The current config has the brown (this seems to be the ground) connecting to a plug at the base of the high beam socket and the gray running the length of the light cluster housing to a connector on the outside of the housing.

I don't have enough wire on the new socket to copy the existing config. Also, I can't figure out where the harness provided goes.

I aked the parts guy for a copy of the S. I. and he told me he couldn't pull it up. I'm assuming this will give me the direction needed. Anyway to get the S.I.?
