stancor relay mod questions

I have a bad relay on my truck and with winter comin on, i hate to use the screwdriver mod on a daily basis to get to work. My ford relay lasted me less than 1 year and im tired of buying them. I want to do the stancor mod and was wondering if there might be a local store that may carry them or is it online only? Also it just wires right up on my 95? Thanks for any help guys.

Think its online only. But I also trigger mine manually every time so as to no wear it out in the summer or any day over 70 degrees.

Less wear on batteries and alternators too.

^^^^ Yep; it's got a "horseshoe" bracket that, with a little finessing, fits the original mounting locations. It orients the contacts to the left, however, instead of facing upward. Contrary to some reports, you can still install and close the "Darth Vader" cover as well. And on one of the other forums, someone has even gotten it to work with the California GPR shunt.

How do you trigger the glow plugs manually?

Cali trucks have a "shunt" on the "downstream" big terminal; splits into two. One side goes to the GPs on the right bank, the other on the left. Each also has a monitor wire that goes to the PCM. That shunt takes up some real estate, and the guy who made it work with the Stancor had to get a little creative with the orientation to get it to fit.

Wired the same as your existing relay. Neither the "coil" circuit (small terminals) nor the "contact" circuit (big terminals) is polarized, so don't worry about which way it faces; just put the small terminal wires on the corresponding small terminals, and same with the big terminals.
