Let me add a note at this point.
As some of you will remember, I have the "direct from alternator" harness 
installed in support of 170 watt main beam bulbs.
I've discovered a problem.  The harness is "economically" cut - the wires are 
_just_ long enough - but fairly tight.  Quite a bit of force is exerted on the 
rear of the main headlight bulb.  This force is _entirely_ held by the plastic 
rocking lever that controls reflector aiming - and it's inadequate to the task.
If you fit one of these after-market harnesses, make sure that the forces 
exerted on the back end of the bulb are minimal.
