If you took a normal looking indicator out of it, you don't have a four-speed hub. But to answer your question, the four-speed indicator is a totally different animal from the AW-type indicator. You'd need to be a good machinist to convert one.

Lemme see if I can attach a photo.... These indicators are hard to find; but no worries, I'm pretty sure you don't need one.
