Does this relay contain a set of "break" contacts

Does this relay contain a set of "break" contacts


April 07, 2015
This relay has a set of contacts normally open. When terminals 85 and 86 get a complete circuit (or bridge thru the coil) it closes the points and handles the current draw of the accessory you are using.

How do you wire this relay? Its going to be used for a electric fan with out a switch

How do you wire this relay? Its going to be used for a electric fan with out a switch


July 30, 2015
You must use some sort of a switch, weather it be the ignition switch, a toggle switch, or a coolant temperature switch. There are numbered terminals on the bottom of this realy, and they are 30, 85, 86, 87 and 87a. 30 is the Battery power, 85 is chassis ground, 86 is the ignition or switched power, 87 the load (fan) and then 87a is not used on a circcit like this.

Electric 12 Volt to 6 Volt Reducer for Motors
(Part #91064103)

This voltage reducer allows the use of an original 6 volt heater blower and switch in a vehicle converted to 12 volts. Safer and much more reliable than the less expensive ceramic type voltage reducers. Compact 1" x 1" x 3" size occupies little space. 12v to 6v reducer works with up to 10 amps of continuous current draw.

Note: This reducer generates a fair amount of heat when in use. It should be mounted to a non-flammable object, preferrably near cool moving air while the vehicle is in operation.

Universal Relay for Fan/Horn
(Part #91064109)

This heavy duty relay takes the heavy-amp load off the switch, thus preventing an overheated circuit and a possible wiring harness fire. Works well with electric fans and horn circuits too. 30 amp relay.

The wiring for the relay is as follows:

  • Short Red Wire (from relay post 87) = power lead to horn or fan
  • Long Red Wire (from relay post 30) = main power supply in
  • Short Black Wire (from relay post 85) = makes ground connection thru a temp sensitive switch or a grounding horn button
  • Long Gray Wire (from relay post 86) = connects to switched 12 volt power (like ignition switch) so horn or fan turns on/off with key

Includes relay, circuit breaker, wire, terminals and instructions.

6 Volt Electric Radiator Cooling Fan-12 Inch Dia. Push/Pull-10 Blade
(Part #910151-12)
Help your vintage engine keep cool by adding an electric cooling fan to your radiator. Electric fans are far more efficient than mechanical engine driven fans because they free up horsepower and only run when you want them to (when used with a fan controller, not included). Plus, most electric fans can be mounted ahead of the radiator or behind the radiator, with the more efficient location being on the engine side of the radiator.
These powerful electric fans work with 6-volt electrical systems and draw 6 to 10 amps, depending on the size. The fan is supplied as a "puller" to mount behind the radiator, but it can be changed to a "pusher" by reversing the wires, flipping the fan blade and mounting in front of the radiator.
  • Available in 12", 14" or 16" diameters
  • Fans have 10 straight blades
  • High impact plastic construction
  • Sealed ball bearings for long life
  • Can push or pull
  • Works with positive or negative ground systems
  • Includes mounting ears (straps not included)

Instructions (PDF)

For best results, be sure that your generator supplies enough current to power the fan. If it does not, check out our 6 Volt Alternator 91067169. It supplies additional current at idle to run electric accessories, unlike many factory generators. To learn more about the importance of using a fan shroud along with your cooling fan, read our tech article Radiator Cooling Performance.
