In Reply to: Of Horns & Headlights... posted by Daniel Cooper on March 07, 2000 at 13:10:07:
Regardless of the brand of headlamps, your 73 does not have relays as part of the original wiring harness... bad. To prevent losing your headlamps when you upgrade, due to melt-down of the circuitry within the dip-switch(ask me how I know this!), you need to install an in-line relay in each individual headlamp circuit. Hella makes a all around relay that works well for this.
I have used both Hella and Marshall H4's. I think the Hella's throw a clearer light than the Marshalls, but the Marshall's have a better periferal pattern.
