Switched to 12V

Thanks.  I'll try it out.

I have a later model transaxle.  I believe that there was only one year that a
swingaxle came with this reverse light feature.

I know about the ring terminals; taken care of.  Currently, I can't remember the
wiring harness configuration.  I know that one of the 3 wires going to the headlamp
had this "pigtailed" wore on it, only about 4" long.  I forget the colors of the TS
wires... I'll look and see.  Thanks.

I'd appreciate it if you'd send a few pics my way.  The more info the better!
