Hey Low...

the headlight thing is probably due to leaking diaphragms (can I say that in here *wink*) in the vacuum motors for the headlight doors.

I have a bad one myself...in the 6 years I've had my baby '67, I've hadda replace around 5 of the dang motors...can't ANYONE make good rubber anymore??? *sigh*

carburation was my problem with Sharky. when i got it, the headlights would work fine but after a while of owning it, the headlights would not close. they would still pop open, but would stay up. after playing with the carb, it was acting normal again. they still both work fine. id try that first and see if that makes a difference before you try to just throw parts at it.
