I need help replacing my fuel pump relay in my 1986 Mustang LX?

The person that owned it before my apparently had a problem, and hillbilly rigged a solution. There is now a wire running directly from the fuel pump to the fuse box, and the wire is wedged into a fuse that is only hot when the car is in the run position.

It is not necessarily a problem, but I would like to set it up right again. I have extremely limited experience with car electrical, so a step by step, or something simple like that would be appreciated.

It would help to know exactly what kind of "problem" this goofball was trying to fix. Replacing hte relay is simply a matter of plugging another one in, but if he cut or bypassed the stock wiring somehow, you're going to have to crawl under there and figure out what he did, unfortunately. Relays should NEVER be bypassed or jumpers run like that, you're risking a short and a fire.
