Default Mystery to Me

On the curb side, inside frame rail about 1 ft from bumper is a heavy duty solenoid. When the starter circuit is hit, this solenoid provides power to the starter solenoid. My question is: Has this been added by a PO or is it a BB item?

To start the 3208, the key switch engages a small selonoid, which then engages that large selonoid, whcih then puts power to the starter selonoid. The A/T switch is in that circuit as well. I found this out the day after I brought my new 1981 bird home from the PO. I turned all of the switches off on the dash, then couldn't get it started again the next day. The dash where the A/T marking was moved slightly and I thought that switdh was a washer swtich. Traked down all of the wires and that is what I found. IT seems a little over kill to have two selonoid in the starter circuit, but that is what they did.

you do need two starter solenoids,because of the voltage requirments of the starter and the starter mounted solenoid.
