Electrical problem
1987 Chevy Truck V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

i cant find the relay for my fuel pump. I had to replace the rubber lines due to cracks and wear, I did NOT disconnect the wires to the pump when I dropped the tank. I removed the pump and placed a plastic bag over it to protect it from debris, then poured the old gas out. I replaced the lines, re-installed the pump and tried to prime the pump by switching the ign. On/off but now I dont hear the pump running or the relay. I checked the fuses and were good but could not find the relay. I bought the replacement part hoping to make a visual match but no luck? Any answers?

I ran into the same problem, Auto Zone doesnt carry anything like this, and LMC Truck caries the same thing as Auto Zone. Where can I get the RIGHT part?
