Guys, take the bottom off the solenoid. It's just a press on fit. Look at copper washer/plate(the piece that does the connecting). Most of the time, it is burned. Just rotate it 90 degrees. problem solved. Put bottom plate back and seal it with some sort of good sealant. Worked on the HWH engage solenoid. I'm cheap

Talking new solenoids

Thanks Shane/ Steve
Got Cole Hersee 24076 and Cole Hersee 24213
The first is intermittent and the second is constant.

I do believe that by Wed. I'll have both installed and can put my ignition problem to rest. I hope.

If you still have the old one, try what I said. You have nothing to lose, and might gain a spare.

Can you use a continuous duty solenoid in place of an intermittent duty solenoid?

Always use the component designed for the job. However, yes you can use a Continuous Duty Solenoid, but it would have a shorter life expectancy compared to the purpose-built Intermittent Duty Solenoid. But you cannot use an Intermittent Duty Solenoid in place of a Continuous Duty Solenoid!



http://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=10169

Continuous duty solenoids are wound with very fine wire and draw very little amperage. The contacts in continuous duty solenoids will usually have a lower amperage rating than that of the intermittent duty type. These are normally used as tilt trim relays. This type of solenoid can also be used for a variety of applications where a remote relay is needed to power a motor or other device.

Intermittent duty solenoids are wound with much heavier wire and draw more amperage. The contacts have a very high amperage rating. If these stay energized for extended periods of time they heat up and eventually burn out the coil inside the solenoid. This type of solenoid is normally used as a starter motor relay.

Again Great info from Diesel Bird

Thumbs up Put to rest

Bill THANKS
To EVERYONE! THANKS
With all the great suggestions and info I do believe my starting problems have been resolved.
Going for a 4 day road trip Friday. The first since I purchased my Blue Bird May of 2012. This 600 mile trip will be a true shake down that should give me a true evaluation of it's road worthiness.
My ability to resolve problems, has only been possible because of all the great help received from the members of this forum.

AGAIN, MANY THANKS TO ALL

LOVE OLD SCHOOL

Ignition issue still exists. Turn key and nothing, try several more times and it starts.
Cannot seem to resolve the issue that I described in previous thread in electrical section.

Seems it is time to inspect the Cannon/Amphenol connectors under the dash.
Follow the wires from the ignition switch into the connectors, Inspect the wires & pins for corrosion & discoloration.
These connectors are know intermittent troublemakers. Also check the ignition switch.
