H4 bulbs

-- [ From: human * EMC.Ver #2.5.02 ] --

I'm in the middle of making my (highly complex) wiring harness and new
lights work on my now running coupe.  The original headlight connector and
the H4 bulbs (100/80 from JCW) seem to have a different pin out.  Any
comments please?

Bad art: This is the connector as seen from the bulb side:


H   Low   G
i              r
g             n
h             d

Stock sealed beams:

G   High  L
r             o
n            w

Obviously these present me with a quandary.  Does anyone if L and H on an H4
bulb are each single filaments or does one setting energize them both?  L=
front filament, 1.2 ohms cold (with reflector), H=rear filament, 0.8 ohms
cold.  Any one care to get out the welding goggles and look at a correctly
operating bulb for me please?

Also, JCW has 165/100's for about U$22, does anyone know of a better source
price wise?

Thanks all.
