What two sires are they, the ones that hang from your dash? By looking at
the 6V wiring diagram in the Haynes, I must say it should not ba any problem
putting in the 12V 4 prong style relay. In this diagram, “tú one wire
that jumps over from another, and one unused, so there is in reality only 4
wires connected to the relay. These are the connections S, F, 56, 56a. The
30 is just a jump from 56, the I is not connected in this diagram.
