Relay Questions (Jump in here Leve!)

I am going to be adding some switches and accesories to my CJ, and I have seen Leve post again and again about using relays, so I have some specific questions about them.

Here is what I will have:

Switch 1 - Accessory Main (turns on the fuse block for the below items)
Switch 2 - 150W KC Lights (Pair)
Switch 3 - 50W Rock Light 1 (pair)
Switch 4 - 50W Rock Light 2 (pair)
Switch 5 - Compressor (engages the clutch on the compressor)
Switch 6 - CB (sends power to the CB)
Switch 7 - Rotary switch to the starter (for anti-theft)
Switch 8 - Rotary switch to the fuel pump (for anti-theft)

Switches 1-4 and 6 will be always hot
Switches 5,7,8 will be run (or on) hot

Questions:

1. Which of these need relays?

2. What amperage?

3. Does adding relays affect my fuse selection?

4. What about this relay, or these ?

6. Does adding relays affect my switch selection (Amp rating)?

7. Where is the best place to mount a relay? Close to the accessory, or can i centrally mount them on the back of the switch panel?

Thanks! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
