i have been told to put a twinlight front on a EB i need to change the headlight relay to a 5 pin relay. which i have. and also ad in a diode or something into a factory plug because the twin lights has projector style low beams and so the lows don't cut out when you flick to highs.

is this true? i have pictures of what i grabbed out of a wrecked Fairlane. seeings as they have projector style lights too

Image

which of the blue and yellow things do i use? and will the factory plug be in the loom somewhere on an EB1?

Twin lights are plug and play, no special modifications needed.

Not sure if your EB 1 will have the plug or not being earlier than ED which is when the quadlights came out...

If you do... Its under the header tank... Just a std white plug...

I've posted these before but I'll do it again...

This shows why you need it and how it works...

All it is, is a zero ohm resistor... Which is a wire link... So I hope you didn't pay too much for it because you can make it with a piece of wire and the 2 dollar plug...

Can't help you with a photo though...

Cheers,
Tim

it goes to a plug in the loom under the header tank, it links the high beam power to the 5th pin on the low beam relay, which powers the low beam globes when you use high beam...
if yours has the link plug and the 5th wire in the low beam relay plug, its as simple as adding the diode link and the 5 pin relay,

some ea' and eb1 dont have the link in the loom..
here is a thread from when i did the xr light conversion to my old ea...
