32/32 should have identical filaments. You can flip it over if one filament burns out. Longer filament length = higher resistance, lower CP. Does it have a number on it?

Also be sure the wiring is correct at the switch end, off-park-bright-dim-off. Seems out of order, but it isn't. Some miscreant wired mine wrong then soldered the tabs in. So I have to reverse them at the bucket.
