My 81 headlights are stuck in up position. I've replaced al of the actuators / relays/ light switch and check valve. I've checked all the lines for proper placement and leaks. Still no luck?? What am I missing???

do you have a vacuum gauge TEE'ed into the downward side of the system???

are you getting vacuum to the headlight switch?? are the headlight door hinges and various bushings free to operate.. without binding???
