Pinto Speedo bulb

There are two wires that plug into the bulb housing inside the speedometer on my Pinto. I have the speedo dissasembled right now. Does it matter which wires plugs into which post on the bottom of the bulb housing?

Because I'm getting blow-outs. Documentation says that with the spedo light out, there is not enough resistence which in turn will cause the headlight to fail.

Anyone???

As far as I know the wires don't matter. What does matter is if ALL the other lights are working on the bike. I had the problem on my Maxi where it kept blowing headlights.Found out that the speedo bulb was burnt.

The speedo bulb burns out in minutes. Been trhrough three now. All the others seem fine.

I can live without it but I'd like to get it running if I could.
