Well, I'm having problems now. It's probably just the wiring, but I don't like how close the solenoid is to the headers anyway, and I know some people have done remote solenoids. I always figured that this solenoid was just a big switch, and only electrically connected to the starter just like any other. But looking in the manual, there's a pic of some type of mechanical linkage going from the plunger of the solenoid into the starter. They call it the "shift lever". What the heck is this, and what can I do with it? I can just go removing this one and putting a ford solenoid in there if this shift lever needs operated. And the count down to memorial day continues....help!
