    • Did you ever get a chance to drop them in the mail?  The tracking info from 10 days ago still shows them as label created.    
    • The convenience harness has 2 male plugs: one for the seat back release with a thick wire, usually black, and the other for the seat belt light/relay system (thinner wire).  The thinner wire plugs into the 3 prong plug coming from the fuse box; the thicker wire goes to another yellow 3 prong plug coming from a power line coming through the firewall and attaches at the other end to the battery side of the solenoid.  Your picture appears to be the latter (firewall) power lead. I can hear the video but I can't see any pictures, so I can't tell you what's going on.  If your passenger side courtesy light comes on but not the driver's side when you open the driver's door, then you probably have a faulty connection at the bulb/socket.  Each year (71,2,3) has slightly different wiring for the courtesy lights.  IIRC, the 73 underdash courtesy lights have a separate harness that starts on the passenger side and runs to the driver's side and stops, but may have outlets for door lights (option).  If this is correct, then you may have a broken wire between the passenger and driver's side bulbs.
    • That's about half of the voltage you should get with the original wiring. Did someone also add in a ballast resistor, in addition to the stock resistance wire? Have you measured the running voltage with the coil you're now using? I suspect your old coil was shorting out internally, if you don't have an added ballast resistor. The higher the load on a resistance circuit, the lower the voltage will be. Pertronix has 1.5 ohm coils that are designed to work with their modules and with stock (resistance wire) circuits, providing you supply the PII with full battery voltage with one of their relays (part no. 2001). Using a 0.6 ohm coil doubles the amperage in the circuit, and the load through the tachometer. The MSD adapter would allow you to use the 0.6 ohm coil and PII at battery voltage and still have a functioning tachometer.
