Well all launched on lake Ontario even though we had strong winds. Minor problem at launch, starter solenoid decided to crap out, I managed to jump the starter solenoid connection and at least get over to the slip.
Has anyone had success in purchasing starter solenoid without having to buy a new starter. I searched Torrenson and local Westerbeke dealer in Ontario but they only list new starters at a small fortune. If I can’t find a solenoid the option is just sending starter to rebuilder for rebuild and new solenoid.
If anyone has had success in finding a solenoid please let me know, greatly appreciated.
Suggest checking connections. A bit of corrosion, especially at starter terminals, can produce that symptom, depending on your jumping technique.
I was able to purchase a new solenoid from Stewart Marine (206) 789-4600 in Seattle
