65 elcamino/chevelle headlight question

im havin a problem with my headlights they have notches that fit in 3 slots but when they go in the lines on the light are facing wrong and the sylvania label on front is vertical (causes the beams to shine vertically insted of horizontally) ive tryd to turn the whole light assembly 45 to get it horizontally but the way the spring and 2 adjuster screws are its not very possible to adjust them correctly.

i went all over tulare and visalia parts stores to find one with no luck found the same kind i have already. pepboys suggested going to napa (they were closed at that time) so i guess ill check them tomorrow.

My question is anyone with or has had to replace headlights for a 64-65 or mabey even 66&67 elcamino or chevelle/malibu, what did they go with brand/ company purchased from?

thanks in advance,
Abe
