Fuel pump question...

I have a 72 and a few years back I installed an edelbrock electric fuel pump. I just installed a Dakota Digital dash this week and now when I start the car, everything seems fine but when I turn on the directionals I can hear the pump make a surging sound as the lights flash. It almost seems like a ground issue but I'm not sure were to look. I never did install a relay in the power line as I didn't know if I really needed one for that pump. It's a mildly built 350. any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. :confused:

I wired it to a keyed positive so as soon as you turn the key on it has power. And Elizabeth, I imagine it did but it was 7-8 years ago!
Thanks guy's. It's been wired this way for years but I ordered the relay last night. Sounds like a good idea to get it changed. And I'm not sure why but the surging disappeared by the time I finished everything. :yes:
Not only did I order 1, Ran into a buddy last night and he gave me 6 pigtails and 18 relays. I guess I should be set for life now.LOL
