    I bought a relay and it came with a nice cable and the relay, couple of bolts, couple of ties,,,,,,Strange thing is there is two strange looking peices in there! They are the same . It is all black, with about a 1' wire that loops around through a black rubber peice that is about 1" long by 2" and 1/2" thick. They will like plug together but what for? Thanks, Tom

    Are they diodes? The older model vee blades has diodes in the system, that look a lot like your distribution. Was this a Snoway factory part? If so tell me the part numbers and I'll check to see for sure. If you want to check, see if they flow current both directions or just one>

    It is a Snoway part. I picked it up from a dealer that closed and he had a few extra parts. The relay had looked different but I figured it was just newer as my plow is 10 years old. I hope the relay works with my plow. Anyway this was in the bag, take a look: http://homepage.mac.com/werps/Snowwaypart

    They're protective plugs for the power cable on the new SMO1 pump. Thats not a relay it's a 150 amp circuit breaker they come in a bag along with a power cable and the hardware to hold it down. I had one in my hand this morning.
