I was working on the old beast today with the ignition on and it was in reverse not running and I noticed the back upi lights turn off, thought maybe I burt a fuse but I can't find one anyone have any ideas what to look for? Any help would be great.

The backup light switch on the trans is notorious for crapping out. Try removing it and
reinstalling it without the aluminum crush ring.
This *may* help. If that dosen't, replace it with a new one. They aren't expensive, but they *are*
a bear to get to, esp w/o a lift.
