I'm just putting my '66B back together.  The directional indicator 
lamps are giving me some grief.  The right indicator bulb works fine, 
but the left one, doesn't work at all.  After a little investigation 
with a voltmeter, it appears there is a 4v drop differential between 
the left and right lamp sockets.  The blinker blinks faster than my 
voltmeter can display, so there is a fluctuation of readings.  But the 
right one fluctuates between 9.15v and 4.5v while the left one is 6v to 
2v.  I have narrowed the difference down to the lamp housing.

Question 1: Am I misdiagnosing this?
Question 2:  Can I fix this either by replacing the lamp holder or some 
other modification?
