I have a 1966 coupe that I show in MCA Concourse. I just bought a replacement starter solenoid. The new one has the following on top:
FoMoCo, C4AF11450A, Repco. The unit I'm replacing has FoMoCo and 2701986 on top.
The catalog I ordered from has both units available, and both are listed as concourse correct for my 1966.
I'm just wondering why two different units are considered concourse correct. Maybe different suppliers. I just want to make sure that my new unit will be accepted by MCA judges, as my 2701986 has been. Any thoughts are appreciated.
I have a 66 fastback that has the C4AF solenoid. When I talked to Kevin Marti about it at one of the anniversaries, he mentioned that the C4AF solenoid was made by a second supplier and thus often being used if there was a shortage of the ordinary one. In my case the car is built mid october at the Metuchen plant where there was a shortage (according to Kevin) about that time.
This is just the thread that I have been after! My very original 66 GT Coupe has the C4AF11450A Repco with FoMoCo in a rectangle. It is a Dec 5th - 7th 1965 build at Metuchen. Is this the correct item or should i get the 2701986?
Thanks in advance,
