I doubt it. Replace that relay!

Turns out the (bad) fuel pump ground was causing the drop in voltage. I replaced the pump by jacking the diff up as high as I could, and then placing jack stands under the frame and then dropping the diff. This created plenty of room the remove the fuel sending unit. I cut the 3 wires for the gauge at unequal length and the soldered and heat shrink sealed after installing the new pump. Entire job took about 1-1 and half hours.
