RE: She no go

She is a 1970 mod (South African) with the original stock motor (single
port), twin carb 1600, all the other parts not mentioned was stock from
the original motor.
The problem started approx. 20 miles after reckoning the carbs (full
gasket set)
The plugs, dissy cap (cracked), points and wires were shot, thus I
replaced them.

The lights have from start given me this headache.
Where can I get a wiring diagram for the relay? I have a copy of Heyns
(I think that is the correct spelling:-) but this is not accurate enough
for my detective capabilities.

(Today it is very cloudy with thick mist and occasional showers)
