Randy, whew, you missed another great beat up IgnitionMan for being right episode, again. You gotta pay more attention, as these events come in rapid succession. Much fun to be had from any one or more of them.
Dean Call's exellent drawing is correct, nice job. Simple, to the point, easily understood and completely right, if you wish to use a remote solenoid.
Randy, A remote solenoid is great for engine maintenance, but won't fix a heat soaked, elevated heat resistance problem in the GM solenoid, just as you said.
Why is it that most people just grab a hammer and beat the daylights out of the magnets inside a starter when it won't work? What a mess that makes, and never fixes it. Fun to watch others do, though. Good comedy show.
