Installing a new fuel pump this winter ..... is there any brand/preference on a circuit breaker and relay that folks use?

The fuel pump companies all have their "kits", but they seem pretty expensive for a breaker, relay , and some wire. What does everyone use?

Just wire it yourself with a 5 pole relay from Napa...Remember they have the "good stuff"

That's the one that's on the Studebaker. I got it from Advance Auto Parts years ago when I built that car and it's still working fine.

Cool, thanks guys. I'll go look and see what I can find. I'm leaning towards a 4 pole, since that's what several products recommend.

If you can't find a 4 pole a 5 pole will work as it can be normally open or closed.. Other than that no difference at all..
