Default Rewire headlights

Is the arrangement/order/location of the three wires in the headlight plugs important or will any arrangement work ?

The wires have to be on the right pins.

Your plugs might have letter indicators on them to tell you which color wire goes where.

Bratton's catolog, page 80, has a diagram. Green/brite, red/dim, yellow/parking.

The plug will only insert into the headlight one way. Look at the plug. They repo's I have used are color coded. Y for yellow, R for red, and G for green. If you orient your wires accordingly, you should be good to go.
