As I mentioned in previous posts, the main relay on our G1 Legends is interchangeable with the main relay on most Hondas of the same vintage (Civic, CRX, etc). The relay is a Mistsuba RZ-0063 (as shown if you click on the picture at the site mentioned by Ikeray). I discovered this purely by accident while helping a friend strip a 1988 Civic 2 door for parts. So, if you can find one at a wrecker's you can likely get it for less than a new one. Other option is to pop it open and re-solder (re-flow the solder) on the circuit board.

Its up under the dash (..waaayyy up) on the driver side. You'll have to lay on your back, with your head resting up against brake pedal ...shine a flashlight straight up, and you'll see the black box. Looks like this: http://replacement.autopartswarehou...47&part=Relay&category=P&dp=false&showdc=true

...you can actually get the innards out of the relay without removing the mounting bolt in the bracket: while pulling gently on the wiring, work a flat-blade screwdriver up between the relay and the case on each long side ...then you can pull the relay innards down. Replacement? simply reverse the process.

I had an electrician resolder two joints in my relay and after that it works like a charm. It has not bothered me ever since. The guy who fixed it didnt even want anything for the job because it just took him like 2 minutes to do.

Yeah I re-soldered mine this past summer, was having intermittant no-starts, and shes worked ever since....a very very simple DIY. Takes more time to get it out and replace it. The solder job itself takes 5 min
