Angry tail lights

ok, 64 belair, 283 v8. Was testing the job I did on replacing the turn signal cam when I noticed a problem. All the signals work with the exception of front left. and all brake lights work. when I turn headlights on, all 4 back ones should come on, but 1 doesnt. the bottom right. I would replace the bulb and such, but this is the light that comes on for turn signal and brake lights, so I know it works. Any suggestions guys? Joe, I know you're gonna say wiring diagram and sort it out, so where is the best place for a wiring diagram on this old jewel?

thanks again everyone

The rear lite has two filaments, the brake-sig is ok and maybe the tail one is ng.

Change all the bulbs with the right part #s and clean all the sockets with WD40 or some other good rust/penetrating oil. You can buy dielectric grease at a parts store to coat the sockets.

As for a wiring diagram, the best manual is a GM service manual. Try Ebay, www.helminc.com or any of these three used book vendors:

Dan Klein at [email protected]
Dan Bower at [email protected]
Dave's Books on Ebay.

I have bought from all three and they were all very fair on prices.
