What is the current draw? Single phase or 3 phase? What do you plan to control the relay with? Perhaps a better description of what you are doing will give us better incite to provide answers.

I'm not sure I'm following, Are you talking about the centrifugal switch to drop out the start winding? What does the old "relay" look like? Is it inside the motor?
