Are you sure the headlight itself is grounded (earthed) to the chassis well? I had one that was loose on the bracket and would only light if I moved the body of the headlight.

Gerry,the contacts in the thimble are spring loaded. The spring carries the current, and they can loose their tension. check that the contacts are spring loaded at each end of the thimble, and they are sitting at the same height.
