Electrical problems are difficult to advise over the internet. The only way is to get a test light and ohm meter and get in there and see what's happening.

It could be a bad generator (to mid-73) or bad alternator (from mid-73), bad ground, or a short. Check the fuse and for power/ground/continuity for each component that isn't working or working properly, start there.

Something we found out about our 73' is it is a combination of the 72 and 74 wiring diagrams.
