These are just the relays, not the holder. You can buy different types, weather proof, no weatherproof or just the 1/4" spade female connectors to attach. The weatherproof holders like the guys are talking about from the salvage yard, are very expensive new. If you need weatherproof ones new, I found Omron (probably who makes the GM ones) for about $11 each. That is why the salvage yards are the best place to find. Since I built a box to keep weather out, I bought the mounting bases ( for $0.60 and spade connectors and made my own.

Check my post a few back in this thread. I gave all of the info for buying the Omron skirted relays and a pretty economical sealed base. As Exposed mentioned, the relays and bases can be pretty expensive if you don't know where to look and buy. With the parts I listed, you can do one relay, minus the wire, for about $11.00 including a sealed connector/base.

These parts do work as I have been testing them on my dual sport motorcycle for about 2 years. I had to convert my motorcycle from a split AC/DC system to a full DC system and needed a relay to isolate stuff. Properly assembled, this setup is very robust. Very capable for use in the engine compartment. I am going to use these non-sealed units for a few applications inside the cab where it is theoretically dryer.

Mine are from a 92 or 93 Deville, really easy to spot, right on the firewall in this case, i even took the bar they were mounted on, all for around $5.

Around here salvage yards are a rip off circus.

The relay for the manifold heater is different from the other relays.

It has a different make and break voltage because it uses a resistor to pull in the relay for the heater.

Other then that good deal.................
