Default Headlight/park light

My headlight reflector has two sockets. The one at the top, a smaller socket for a park light I'm assuming, has been disconnected. My light switch has three positions, high, low and cowl lights. If I install the double socket headlight wiring from Snyders will the park light activate when I have the cowl lights on? Thanks

It will if you have it wired so that it will.

I guess that's my question. How would I wire it so that it would? The headlight wiring I got from Snyders has the two sockets with the main plug also that connects to the vehicle wiring through the conduit. I'm just wondering if they'll come on with the cowl lights. They were disconnected when I bought the car

If you want the parking lights to come on with the cowl lights, they will have to be wired into the switch at the bottom of the steering column on the same set of tabs that the cowl lights are connected to.
