In the 1970s, Tek produced their own miniature relays in-house that were used in some 7000-series plug-ins such as the 7A11, 7A12, 7A13, and other equipment. These relays have a tendency to fail and have become very rare.
Interestingly, Tek appear to have manufactured replacements based on commercial TO-5 relays on small carrier boards
Some of these relays have symmetrical socket layouts so that they can be installed in both possible 180° rotated positions.
Possible repair strategies include "micro-surgery" (Ref.1) or installing modern miniature relays on top of the cut-off base.
