I've been meaning to pull mine apart for a couple years now, just to inspect/clean/repair. That, vs. the cost of a new one is a bargain in my mind.
Now for the stupid question: I continually get confused on the purpose of the "yellow"relay - knowing that I have a 50/50 chance of getting it right. Overboost cut-out relay, or ignition time delay run-on relay? If I remember correctly, both relays act by cutting off the fuel pumps, but for different reasons.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
