    Headlight door help on 68 Eldorado

    I have a 68 Eldo that the headlight doors do not work. I know I'm probably the only one with this problem. I can get mine to open and close by playing with the vacume lines under the hood but I can not get the switch to open them. I would think the pneumatic part of the switch would be failsafe. It looks like the hoses are hooked up correctly to the switch and I do not hear any air leaks under the dash. Is there a common problem to check for?
    Other than buying an impossible to find, expensive, new switch is there any other options out there? How about a remote underhood pneumatic switch from another vehicle?
    Hoping someone has some experience with this.
