Need help adjusting headlight on 1968 Mustang Coupe

Hi,

I just replaced the driver side headlight and the light points a little to high and a little wide to the left. I tried to adjust the light using the three adjusting screws but it didn't seem to adjust the light at all. Is there anything else, any trick to adjust the headlight?

Thanks

After turning the adjuster screw a bit, wiggle the headlamp to re-seat the bulb in a new position.

Aren't there only TWO adjuster screws for up-down and left-right? Three screws hold the headlight in place in the bucket, they don't adjust the aim.
