Question 1966 head lamp bucket sequence

Hi Is there any where I could get a good detailed drawing or photos of how the Head Light assembly goes together on a 1966 Chevelle my Car came in boxes and I want to install the Head Lamps / Head light Buckets and adjusters I have a Left-1, Left-2, Right-1, Right-2 the Manual is very poor as to how it is to be assembled ?
I just ordered all new adjusters and will also purchase new Lamps.
I hope this is where I should post this question ?
Help...!

In your pic all you have to do is:


Install the headlight adjusting screws with their clip in nylon nuts into the headlight housingsa.


Install the buckets on to the headlight housings with the tabs fitting in to the grooves of the adjustment screw heads.


Install the headlights into the buckets


Attach the trim rings to the springs and then to the housings with the short scres.

Install Manual says put a dab of Lubriplate on the bumps of the core support which the buckets pivot on.

Re: 1966 head lamp bucket sequence

When installing the plastic clips that the adjusting screws go in to is there a right or wrong way or should i say a proper way to install them ? Just received the plastic clips and adjusting screws tonight.
