Stop the press!!
I now have headlights
I went to check to see if power was at least coming from the switch on the dash and as I was "persuading" the switch to move enough for me to do that I saw that one of the 2 plugs at the back of the switch was not properly seated. I snapped it in place and there was light
Thanks again everyone for the posts
BTW the switch from Amazon came the next day and is in the same Ford Motorcraft box and is the same part as the local Ford dealer quoted me 208 plus tax...Amazon 88 plus tax and free shipping to my Alpine door!!
