All automotive relays are the same. So you can go to your local part store and grab some.

We bought an old CAT 246 skid steer that would not start
We bought an old CAT 246 skid steer that would not start because "controller gone bad". We replaced the controller, still would not run. On ignition half turn all lights come up on the left side and battery light on the right, then all lights on the left, except "parking" and one above it go off. Then on the second half turn, nothing happens. Starter does not crank. The power (9.5V) comes to the harness 62 or 64 connector at the controller but we cannot trace it any further. Also, when we try to supply power to the starter directly, it works just fine. … read more
