The round receiver may be stretched some.  Try using a large pair of pliars to gently squeeze the receiver back to it's normal shape.  If the lead contact is not making contact, you might want to add some solder to it with a soldering gun.  Just use common sense,  There needs to be the positive contact with the lead spot, and there needs to be negative contact with the receiver.

No Stephen, but you have two lights under the dash, and if you have a console, you have one in the rear of the console.  My 65 lights up just fine without a dome light.
