There should be a small glass fuse near the battery, have a look there. The ignition switch would be my next guess, then I'd start looking for mouse droppings in the headlight bucket.

If I remember correctly the headlight was AC running directly from the alternator. The T/S, taillight and brake light were battery operated. T/S that lights but doesn't blink can either be the wrong bulbs or to low a battery voltage, or the relay...
