Glow Plug Relay; Intl/Ford, Stancor, Delphi, Allliant...?

My GPR is on its way out. I read all the archives and here's where I'm at now. The Stancor sounded good in theory, but quite a few got some bad ones. The Tycos are too expensive and made in China anyway.

I can quickly find the International part, or an equivalent by Delphi or Alliant. Any recommendations? Are the Delphi and Alliant just the same as the International/Ford part or different. Are there other ones out there? I would like to get a better one than stock. Thanks.

I use this relay that you can get at any snow plow shop that sells Meyer or Western Plows. It is rated higher than stock GPR and I walked in plow shop with part number and paid 13 dollars.
Here is a place online selling them All Western Parts: 1 Motor Relay 56131K 1 @ Equipment Specialists, Inc

part number 56131K-1 and it just fits with no mods. It is ungrounded just as the stock GPR is designed.

here are the specs and name on the relay it self and just give them the part number 56131K-1

I wouldn't give up on Stancor. I have had one for years without any problems. Yes there were some who got bad ones but that was a while ago. They are not as cheap as the relay Jim is talking about but they are a good quality relay.

I'm using a basic $10 Ford starter solenoid ('68 Mustang application).

IMO its going to last a good long time with the ~100A resistive load of the GPs vs. the cranking duty of a 302 or 390 starter.

Griz, By all means the Stancor is the best but I have been using these plow relays with great results

The guy using the starter relay, you cant use starter relay cause they are grounded on the mount bolts.

Thanks for the responses.

Does the Western/Trombetta per the 56131K-1 part number have the 90 degree bracket like the stock International/Ford part or a 180 degree bracket? Thanks

I too am using the Western Plow relay with good results. I am happy. And at that price, it is a bargain. I plow and the relays on the plows take a beating. I figure it should last a long time.

I just got one of the Western relays. One the stock GPR there are 2 large lugs and 2 small lugs. On the Western there is only 2 large lugs and 1 small lug. Are you putting the 2 small wires on the one small lug?

this is wrong, you need 2 small terminals so computer can ground to activate and then it ungrounds to deactivate. Do not use the single one or relay will be on all the time

here is correct relay
