[DML] Re: RPM Relay

The relay is a double-contact relay. Obviously one of the contacts is 
still closed when the engine dies. I've had the contacts warp and bend 
and not close when they should, or close when they shouldn't.

I had to straighten them with a needlenose pliers. A schematic can be 
found in the manual in the fuel section.
