Starter Relay issue
Okay guys, I'm new to this forum. Not new to wings by any stretch of the imagination, but new to the 1200's. I picked up my 84 Interstate yesterday and rode it home nearly 200 miles without an issue. I went out this morning to try and clear out some of the rat's nest that the PO had left under the shelter. When I traced one of the wires back to the battery, I found that the connector to the starter relay had melted and taken part of the relay with it.

On another board, I was informed that I could use a relay from a Ford to circumvent this, so I tried it.

Here's my problem, I'm not sure where the 30 amp fuse is supposed to go, and honestly I don't really know how the wires are supposed to be connected. The relay I have is a four pole relay and is grounded like most to the body/frame. I have the green and red wire connected to the grounding point that attaches to the body, but that is the only thing I know for sure that I have right.

Can someone help a brother out? :YMPRAY: :YMPRAY: :YMPRAY:

Even when you have the mod done, examine it occasionally to make sure it doesn't loosen off over time other wise this might happen......

maybe a little dielectric grease might help to keep the moisture out.

Carry a spare fuse.

No harm, no foul. Just trying to get acclimated to the surroundings. :d Sad|)
