Your motors need to be rebuilt. The good news is that the rebuild kit costs about $5 and you can do it over lunch and still have time to eat lunch. Do a search on 87-88 headlight rebuild.
For the most part this is true, if the issue is the 3 plastic pucks that transmit the torque from the plastic gear to the metal part pressed on the shaft.
I just recently had one go bad on my 88. I pulled it apart expecting to see the plastic pucks had turned to powder, but instead the metal part that was pressed on the shaft was spinning. I drilled the metal part and shaft and pinned them together and everything works again.
