There's a cut-off year somewhere in the 70's I think where they 'updated' (term used loosley)to the yellow relays, vs. a standard round black one. It seems that early on when I was troubleshooting what I thought was a yellow problem, that swapping it with a black one did not work...but then somewhere along the line I found the problem to be the overspeed relay under the seat. So I presume that round vs. yellow rectangular relays only work in the year of car they were wired for.

I took that overspeed relay apart and re-soldered all the points I would get to and fixed the issue. Have since found a used one that I got for $45, which now resides in my glove box. And of course I also have a spare yellow that I probably didn't need after all. Money pits, these cars, sometimes.

Fred, the yellow has nothing to do with ignition...just fuel.
