85 for a relay??

The down tilt relay is sticking on my Tohatsu 60, give it a clout and it comes back to life for the day. Just phone Reddish Marine for a replacement and spat me coffee all over the place, at least Dick Turpin had the decency to wear a mask!!

You might not be surprised to hear that I plan to use RS/ Maplin's best and hide them in an IP rated box under the console when I do the PT upgrade.

As a thought, if it's got 2 relays, post a pic (detial the pins on the bottom) - I wonder if they are just watertight versions of a standard part?

Mre likely, it's just an off-the-shelf part.

See if you can glean a manufacturer and part number from the original part, then see if you can cross-reference it to something available near you.

Same applies if it's a re-labeled Tohatsu part.

Not a hell of a lot inside relays...

Clean contacts, slight file contacts with used metal fine grade sand paper, check spring for correct tension, all relays have one, plain or coiled spring type. Does this relay have gold contacts to cost so much, very expensive indeed!!

Happy Boating

Buy a cheap automotive relay from Halfords, and when it fails, if ever, buy another.
