1983 MK1 Golf GTi Fuel Pump Relay
Fuel Pump Relay
One way to wire in an extra relay you would either have to relocate the fuel relay above the fusebox similar to how the S1 MK1 relay recal does it then have that trigger your new relay, this can then be hooked into spade N on the back of the fusebox to power up the fuel pump fuse.
Or leave the factory relay as it is and cut your new relay inline with the wiring to the fuel pump
I was planning to keep original relay then installing an inline 15amp circuit breaker between the +ve supply from the relay to the fuel pump?
You think that would be ok? Or should I go for a lower amp circuit breaker?
Not sure what the amp rating on the Bosch fuel pump is
Worst case if the pot seals have gone you could mount an external swirl pot and feed it from a Scirocco/cabrio/polo lift pump or an aftermarket pre-supply pump.
It's also possible the main pump is just bad and needs replacing
Relays, I tried the JP Group brand, appears to be cheap.
Tried Torpan brand again didn't last long.
Thinking of this one which has fuse, supplied by VW Heritage
MK1/2 SCIROCCO Fuel Pump Relay, With Fuse - 321906059C | eBay
Any recommendations otherwise?
Can you advise if the fuse on this is replaceable if blown?
I found a second hand one but prefer new.
Sytec Motorsport Bullet High Flow In-Line Fuel Filter | Rival Motorsport
Would this be an option? It's high flow and 8mm ports?
The only other thing would be is where to install underneath and how to protect it from the road elements.
You mentioned earlier "external swirl pot and feed it from a Scirocco/cabrio/polo lift pump"
Can you please advise part number for the swirl pot and the lift pump so I can look into that if required?
Ref the relay, struggling finding a Kracker relay. I found a Hella brand so guessing it should be ok as my other relays are Hella.
for the lift pump there are several numbers but its post-84 cabrio and scirocco injection you're looking for, or any G40 shape polo will have one. all of these have the pot you're after too
