DRT,

I'm jealous, wish you would come teach me how to rebuild mine!

Just picked up my reworked heads and dropped them off with my mechanic.

Well, mine received 3 brand spanking new Halogen headlights tonight! 

And I learned something... headlights burn out at the speed of light!  Cheesy

One was already blown on the high beam, and I had forgotten I needed to replace it.

The other two were mechanical error... or rather operator stupidity...

I don't fully understand it, and will be studying the schematics to see why it happened.

I forgot to hook up the 12v tap on the batteries when I was working on them this fall.  I had left the headlight switch on the last time
I shut off the bus, and when I flipped the master switch on tonight, I saw one go.  Bright 24v flash!
That wasn't good enough. Stupid me had to hit the dimmer switch and take out one of the high beams, too! 

Again, I don't understand why not having the 12v tap would cause this. Somehow it must be providing a ground for the 24v side of the
series connected bulbs. Will have to see if I can figure this one out so I can figure out a way to prevent it from happening again.
