Relays - anybody know how to replace one, or what with ?

If the relays are the period when the three were facing upward which if I recall was around 68-70 then they do tend to fill with water as the car has no bonnet seal. The modern relays are a much better waterproof seal but if they are facing upwards and you really want to fit the original Lucas type then drill a small hole in the forward metal front edge and they will then give less of a problem. When I viewed the white plus 2 with the 'questionable' purple roof I noticed he had put in modern Bosch relays and it actually slides inside the the Lucas metal casing so was hardly that obvious
