Did you read the instructions? It's the first diagram on left on the first page.

No, yer reading that wrong...

The X1 and X2 terminals on the relay panel are a 'contact closure' and they will make contact when the panel calls for heat.

Measure it with a multimeter if you don't believe it.

When you say 'old relay' , I believe you are referring to the boiler aquastat? A (probably) gray box on the boiler, (probably) Honeywell brand, about 4" x 6" ?

If so, you MUST keep that aquastat relay, and all it's wiring.

The 'green and red' wires you refer to... what terminals are they connected to on the boiler ?

Older W-M boilers used this:



instead of an aquastat control, and the G - R terminals are the connections for the thermostat, which you said was connected to these.

Wire the X1 and X2 to those two wires, leave all the other stuff on the boiler alone.
