Question about 1982 Chevrolet El Camino

1 Answer

1964 El Camino headlight problem

I have a '64 ElCamino with a rebuilt 327/ 300hp, double hump heads, small cam, about 1000 miles on rebuild. I have replaced the generator, voltage regulator, horn relay, dimmer switch, headlight switch, and turn signals on a factory tilt column. My problem is, intermittently the headlights will flicker on and off. What have I missed? I have another forward light wire harness and can put it in if necessary. Any ideas before I go to that trouble?

Do you have high power globes fitted more than 65W.
If so you will need a relay to supply H/Lamps as the original headlamp switch has built in circuit breaker only good for about 15Amp
