    The brake light and turn signals work when the headlights are off, but when I turn the headlights on, the turn signals and brake light no longer do anything, it just stays lit. Trailer lights are 2 wire, dual filament, and ground to frame.

    Head help?

    I rebuilt the motor on a 1.9 liter escort motor. I now need to put the head and bottom end together, and I'm trying to line up the timing marks. How do I spin the cam so I can line up the timing marks? Do I need to loosen the rockers so it can spin freely?
