Im not a wiring expert, but Ive converted a few from 6-12, a fog lite relay should work for headlights, if its a 1 wire alt. feed direct to battery, you didnt mention gas gauge an IRC 9211 PW10 25 ohm. 5 % resistor available @ radio shack wired in power feed will work for gas gauge.

thanks
my next problem is figuring which of the horn relays connection are what
the diagram shows somewhat
but the relay is not quite like shown it has a bullet connection,a
center nut which is the main horn line and 2 more connects.
i am trying to see which goes to[coil neg.,ignition,flasher] [ ammeter,starter solenoid]
and which to [horn button]

The HAMB board is a good source for this type info.
