I am about to do the (+) mod based on JarkkoT's diagram here:
http://www.tlzone.net/forums/frequent-tl-mods/30292-grounding-mod.html

In JarkkoT's wiring diagram, the following connections are indicated on the relay:
85 = old coil +12V
86 = ground

I just purchased a 12V 30A relay DF005 "Baja Tough" 5-pin. The pin diagram on the back of the package indicates the following:
85 = ground
86 = to switching means (I guess in the TLR's case, the coils)


Seeing as the 85 & 86 pins are reversed depending who I listen to (JarkkoT or the relay manufacturer)... what to do?
Does it matter?

Please advise...

It doesn't matter which way you connect it unless it has a diode across the input.On a normal relay pins 85 & 86 are the connections to an electromagnet that closes the points,so it doesn't matter which way they polarised.

Cool... thanks for confirming my suspicions.

I just have the 1 link to the (+) mod instructions (given above).
Are there any other threads that have more information, pictures, or helpful advice to make it go smoothly?
