Does anyone have a picture of a correctly wired starter solenoid for a '66 inline six? I believe the wiring on the solenoid is the same for 8cyl also, so a picture of that would work.

I'm especially interested in a wire that has a round end that is only big enough to fit onto the two smaller posts rather than on the bigger posts that the battery cable attaches to; does it get bolted to the smaller post on the solenoid? If so, which post. I previously had it rigged with some wire and tied to the the post where the battery connects to.

My solenoid has been acting up and finally it won't start. The car is sitting in my work parking lot. So, I figured I'd try to get the wiring all correct this time around.

Thanks in advance for any pictures.

Charles, thanks for the picture.

I have another wire that isn't shown in your picture. It has a hard rubber molded end with a small metal eyelet. I had it tied to the battery side of the solenoid. But the eyelet is too small to fit onto the positive side of the solenoid. Do you have any idea what this may be?

Thanks.

it's for the power top. it should mount to the positive side of the solenoid.

The fabric coated wire is missing the fabric on my car. Is it available?...or do I need a complete harness?

the best solution i have found is to buy an original pink resistor wire for behind the dash. this has a long piece of the tar coated stuff you can use to transfer. otherwise, yes, you can replace the harness and it will have a new piece on it.
