    Those automotive solenoids are worse than motorcycle solenoids for having the market flooded with really poor quality replacements. You need to find quality.

    Hence the recommended Federal Mogul OEM one that is only a few dollars more than the cheap knockoffs.
    Available at O'REILLY'S Auto Parts.
    Cheap = crap.

    Got a part #? Checked that parts store, no longer carried or they didn't know.

    Ok laugh all you want, I kept trying to find a Ford Mogul solenoid and just now realized you were saying Federal. What is my mind coming to?

    I found lots of Ford's and more than a few Moguls.

    FEDERAL MOGUL.

    ETV stands for Extra-Terrestrial Vehicle. The only thing better than having one is having two.

    These are the shorted contacts from a Rick's Motosports solenoid as sold by AF1. The cheap knockoffs from China are smaller, I just can't find them right now. Imagine 100amps of welding current running across them......

    The two Rick's in the Spares drawer have manufacturer dates (2016 11) and Made in Taiwan. They weigh more than the knockoffs.
