Question about Metz 58 AF-1 FLASH f/NIKON TTL Flash
I would like to adapt my Sunak TR-PAK II high voltage battery pack for use on my new Metz 58 AF-1, using the Metz V58 power cord, which normally connects to the Metz P76 battery pack, which sells for around $500..ouch!
My question is, why are there 4 pins on the V58 power cord, what is the little "box" on the cord, and is it possible to adapt a two pin 330 volt cord to the Metz 58 AF-1 flash. I understand that the automatic functions on the Metz 58 AF-1 will work without internal batteries when using the high voltage P76 Power Pak. Is one of the additional connections for a low voltage to run the control circuitry in the flash? Any help would be appreciated.

I have a circuit diagram for the 45CT-5 and the flash unit as well. The voltage is 360V DC, which goes straight across the flash tube. The top pin is positive, when the notch in the socket is on the right hand side, i.e. towards the back of the flash.
I'm also looking for a circuit diagram for a 45CL-4, if you know anyone who has one.
