Distributor relay

Recommended Posts

Okay, now I've discovered my relay got fried.:mad:

After an intense search for a part no longer in production, I found a new one in Texas (yee-har!) part # B5230E4185. Hopefully I'll see it sometime next week.


In the mean time.....


Are these rebuildable, (well, I guess anything is rebuildable.), has anyone here ever attemped to rebuild one?

You'd have to ohm out the relay. If the coil is an open, NO, you can not rebuild it. If the coil is good and the contacts are not making a good connection, then you should be able to clean the contacts and reuse it. Without pics, it just a guess that you can even get the can open.


oh....I'd just do like Hainz said anyway. The second set of points is for emissions, not for performance. If you have an EI dizzy in, the relay isn't used anyway.


This is all provided we are talking about the same relay.
