[TR] Headlights too high

Is the bulb in upside down?  (Don't laugh - a friend had a late 70's Cadillac with one bulb in upside down.  I think it was that was from the factory.)  There are three bosses in the glass that fit into recesses or cutouts and if the bulb is not positioned properly the bulb may be askew in the bucket.

Also check that the bucket is engaging the adjuster screws properly.

Subject: [TR] Headlights too high

I've always had a problem with my headlights pointing too high.  I've tried
adjusting the three adjusting screws with the top screw out as far as it
can go (and still have any sort of push against the spring) and the side
screws in as far as they can go (until the bottom is touching).  I've
even taken the bottom retainer plate screw off since it is pushing against
the headlight bucket so that the bottom of the headlight can get even

And yet the headlights are still pointing too high, the passenger side
headlight doesn't even touch the road, and the driver's side barely
gives me much light on the road.

Any suggestions for how to adjust these further or what I might be doing
