Surface Roughness - Conversion of RS on a Print to RZ

Hope this is the correct place for this. I have a Honda surface roughness spec of RS 6 um max called out on a print per JIS B 0651 for a functional extrusion part. Does anyone know of a conversion chart or know the conversion of RS to RZ?

First off, here is a conversion chart that I've found useful.

Second, RS is not a common parameter for describing surface roughness. I've seen it equated to "RMS" http://www.engineersedge.com/surface_finish.htm
but also to the mean spacing between peaks.

Then there is an indication that Rs may be the same as Ra from early days of measurement. I've posted an image from George VanderVoort's book "Applied Metallography."

I wish I could give you a definitive answer. Is there any more information you might be able to provide? Age of the drawing? A shot of the callout?

All customers requiring surface roughness measurements ask for it in RZ except this one. I did find one conversion chart but the conversion number from RS to RZ didn't seem right. Our normal RZ readings on similar extrusions is between 1.45 - 2.90. I have attached the chart I found as well as the spec call out / procedure last updated in 1989. Thank you for the links and time.
