Worth every penny

August 31, 2012
I order this for an electric fan installation. I didn't end up need one with such a large load. I figured for the price it would suit my needs because it would be under rated. Boy was I surprised when I received this thing. I will use it the next time I install an air compressor.
Pros:
  • Durable
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.

Best for what they are used for.

October 20, 2011
I am an starting drag car builder( 1/8-1/4 strip) I use these relays for the fan, water pump, fuel pump and any other application where I need to tame the 12 volt input. They are used in conjunction with a six gang switch box with starter button. This was my second order from Speedway for this item. If I build a third car I will order another five or so 40 amp relays.
Pros:
  • Easy To Use
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.

Wow! I know it is just a relay but:

September 11, 2011
I have been looking for a fuel pump relay. Most rate relay harnesses at 30 amps then give you 12-14 gauge wire to hook it up. This has 10 gauge wire probably overkill but that's what I want.
Pros:
  • Durable
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.

If the white wire is not normally used, what would it be used for? Second speed on fan, maybe?

The white wire (87A terminal of the relay) will have 12V power connected at all times when the relay does not have 12V power applied to the blue wire (86 terminal of the relay). In other words the white wire works opposite of the blue wire. Any time there IS power at the blue wire there will not be power at the white wire. Any time there is NO power at the blue wire there will be power at the white wire. The technical term for this type of circuit is 'normally closed' and can be abbreviated as N/C.

is this suitable as a headlight relay?I am wireing a 1946 gmc truck and would like to use a relay for the headlights instead of pulling all the current through a switch on the dash.

This relay could be used on almost any application to buffer the current draw on the switch. It will handle up to 40 amp on start up and if needed Speedway also offers 91050051 which will handle a 70 amp start up draw.
