"Jeff, Did you find a signal switch yet?  As Jason stated, tilt and non-tilt switches are very different.  I have both and can provide either one.  Send me an e-mail. faresmcmthelix@msn.com. Charles Fares"

"Tilt or non-tilt column? They are very different. Non-tilt internal, tilt external fed by a Bowden cable. I am out of both but can put you on my Wait List if no one here has one."

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 6 Comments

All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …

Upper A Arm Rubber Bumpers
