front running lights

I am mounting some bullet lights on the front of my 59. Which terminal behind the tins should I hook up the wire to? I want them to come on when I turn my ignition switch to the second position and stay on with high or low beams.

if everything else on your bike is wired the way it should be the #9 post on the terminal board should work the way you want it to. That terminal should have the green wire that comes from the #2 switch terminal connected to it and also the RED/w BLACK Tracer feed wire that goes to the HI/LOW switch on the handlebar. let us know what you find.

Thanks Mike!
I will hook it up tonight. I noticed there is not a 59 wire diagram in the knowledge Base. The diagram in my shop manual says 59 only. Any idea what is different from 59 to 60?
