I was in town later than expected last night, and didn't get headed for home until a few minutes after nine. When I got away from the lights of town and was driving a stretch of road under trees, it was dark enough that my headlights lit the way, sort of. The trouble was that they hit the road much closer to the car than I'd like, leaving most of the road ahead in the dark. I want to aim them out farther ahead, and I wonder what's the best way to do it. Do I want to turn them red while adjusting, or bend them cold? Maybe somebody who has done this can advise.
You can bend the stalk cold with a proper tool, I use a pipe wrench of the european style where you can clamp without turning.
Ford had a special tool shown in fig. 127 at page 48 in the Service Manual.
