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, 7A14, 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 relays in TO-5 metal can cases soldered to small carrier boards with pins matching the Tek sockets.
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 gold-contact relays on top of the cut-off base.
