no brake lights

I Have Tail Lights But No Brake Lights On My 1923 T-bucket.

I Even Switched From A Pressure Brake Switch To A
Manual Switch And Still Nothing Sent Diagram Into People
At H.a.m.b. And They Said I Have It Wired Correctly.
I Even Checked To Make Sure Double Filament Bulb And Grounds
Are Good.

Please Help

Silly question is the socket you are using, a double wire or single wire?

If it's a double..... hook a jumper from a 12v source to the brake light pole/wire/side of the light socket - it should light, trace the brake light wire back towards the brake light switch, to the next connection , jump that - it should light etc..... until you get to the brake light switch etc..... If it lights at both sides the switch with a jumper..... are you getting 12v before the switch?
