It was the wrong bulb. Put two new 2057 bulbs in, aligning the pins. Seems to have the same brightness and all the quirky stuff is gone. I have dibs on the patent for this modification. Reminds me of the time I installed the transmission modulator on the carb of my 69 Fairlane. Made some transmission techs very happy. I tend to be very grateful for this forum, since this is more the rule for me, not the exception. Thanks!

One last question. Do you think I damaged anything, or would I have just taken out a fuse first?

Truth alone triumphs, not untruth.
