A common mod. All you have to do it tap into the light next to it.

The rear harness in my '72 was a hacked up mess when I got he car, too. I just used a test light on each wire. Turn the left turn signal, poke each wire until you find one that makes the light blink, mark it. Turn the right turn signal on, repeat. Turn the headlights on, repeat... and so on... Both lights have two wires going to them. One wire is for the turn signal and brake light, the other is for the tail light. The light grounds through the housing.

i had planned on doin that but i went a lil over board and pulled the windsheild, dash, steering column and motor. money slowed me down some so i want to start on something else, got all the ground wiring done starting on the brake/turn lights tonight.
