fuel pump relay

Can anyone tell me which relay to use on my fuel pumps, I am running 2 x Holley red & 2 x efi fuel pumps do I use 1 for each pump or 1 for each pair & where can I get them.

Thanks John

I don't run a relay only an inline fuse which is easy to get to, on live feed to switch.

depends how many pairs of contacts it has.
I ran a relay on mine this season but will be taking it out as its stuck a couple of times they don't really like getting shaken about.

Wacky, is your pump run from the ignition???

No straight from the battery, no power drop that way, and if you flood, you can shut off the fuel
