Rob,

Take a look at this thread- I think Tom posted a link to pictures of what you're looking for.

PO says that the genset slide solenoid on my bus got wrecked by a blowout of the right front tire.

I'd like to go pick up another solenoid, I didn't see what year range ford solenoid it was. (I did do a search, but didn't find it)

Patrickhe word solenoid covers a lot of ground on a bird,he could have lost the ford type solenoid which is really a relayl or the air solenoid on an FC or the hydraulic solenoid on the PT's.
we need more info here.

I'll take a closer look at it today. PO said it was the solenoid for the slide power for the genset. I wasn't aware there were multiples. It's for the 85 pt40.

He said he had replaced it previously, and that it was a $15 part. I was going to go pick one up, if anyone knew the part number.

The Ford Style solenoids are found all over the early model 'Birds they used them for a lot of the lights and switch applications and he probably replaced it with a Intermitent style and that is why it failed again, they look the same on the outside, but you need to use a Continuous Duty style solenoid with a high enough amperage rating. I just ordered some for my turn signal flashers a White Rodgers Solenoid (D.C. Power Contactor) 70-111224-5, at http://megarvparts.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_ in_description=1&zenid=5a4549ada042d9434349cc018ac 861c2&keyword=White+Rodgers+Solenoid+70-111224-5+

Q: What is the difference between an intermittent
continuous solenoid?

A:
An intermittent duty solenoid is designed to be energized

current rating for a very short time - 10 to 15 seconds of load


by a rest time. These are commonly used for starter motors. Continuous

solenoids relay power for an indefinite length of time on an uninterrupted
basis.



Q:




Can a continuous duty solenoid be used in place

intermittent duty solenoid?


A:




Yes, but the continuous duty solenoid will have a shorter life

compared to an intermittent duty solenoid. An intermittent duty


should not
be used in place of a continuous duty solenoid.
