my experience with the later ie 85-87 4k headlight switch is to go halfway 
between the 1 and 2 and when you see the dash lights
stay on and then you slowly turn the switch till the headlights come on, 
this will work for a while...
not a permanent fix..  that is relay it all and get a new switch.

'86 4kq
