    I have a 7 year old Western Uni-Mount 8' straight blade plow. We plow almost strickly gravel driveways and gravel roadways in a rural area. I find that the headlight housing breaks from the vibration of plowing on a rough surface. I am currently trying to switch my headlights from the stock units to the Grote aftermarket lights that are simular. My issue is wires and colors. I have figured out the high/low beams and the blinkers, I cannot get any marker lights to work. I have tested and have power from the wire. I suspect that I need to make a connection to the wires that I am not doing. Any ideas?
    Anyone able to give me Western stock wiring colors and what they do?
    Thanks
