High/Low beam switch is in the column, and activated by a linkage that is moved by pulling

on the T/S lever (stalk on the left side of the steering wheel). There is no relay involved.

Check the bulbs. Wouldn't be the first time both sides went out at the same time.

Most manuals have what we call an "Illustrated Parts Breakdown" or an exploded view of

the assy in question. Usually used as a parts identifier for the mechanic in the field.

Youse will, of course, excuse my use of "military lingo." Alrighty, then.
