First a little history. I'm fairly adept at 12 volt stuff and have a shop full of parts so I decided to not buy the Eastern Beaver headlite cut-out harnesses and do something else. I cut the ground leads to each headlite, planning to run the leads thru simple 2-pole switches, one for each headlight.

Fortunately I always wire stuff on a temporary basis before drilling holes, soldering, etc. I discovered that even with the ground wires cut the lites still come on dimly so they must be getting enough residual ground thru the headlite housing to partially illuminate.

I spent the next hour repairing the damage more or less back to stock. I'll be contacting Mr. Beaver next.

By the way, this project would work with a switch interrupting either of the hot leads to the lites.

Cut the ground and the electrons go through the other filaments to reach ground.

I installed one of Jim's (Eastern Beaver) headlight cut-outs a few weeks ago. Works great and could not have been easier to install. :D
