1984 VK Calais 5.0
Have tried to get fuel pump relay for my 1984 Calais to no avail. Have down loaded the schematic Scott posted up for fuel system but it doesn't tell me what all the pins are for on the bottom of the fuel pump relay. My plan is to do away with the 7 pin relay and may be fit 2 normal relays, is this acheivable? I am desperate to get the ole girl back on the road.

Hey, I've got the same problem. Atm I've got it bridged over where the relay goes and that fixes the problem. But can't get a replacement, everywhere I go they tell me the part's obsolete. What did you end up doing?

You can get one from a efi camira that will fit and is exactly the same . I have one spare you can have for 15 bucks if you get stuck but I reckon you should run the pump power through an additional relay to save the contacts on the tachonomic relay.
heres the camira one i have ..it has a tag on it as it is mounted separately on a camira but you can take the tag off pretty easily to fit it into the base on a vk

Yeah, it's about $170 for a new one from bosch. How hard would it be to get a similar relay with its female plug, cut off the old one and swap em over. Or is the price more because its a 7 pin?

just a standard 30 amp relay so terminal 87 of the tachonomic relay feeds the coil of the new relay and 12v is switched from the new relay to the fuel pump.
