OK, go ahead and start snickering.  LOL  The last solenoid I changed was on a small block Chevy.  Does the starter have to come off?

If the starter is turned so the solenoid is on the side you can change it without removing the starter if on top that is a different ball game easier to remove the starter. 


good luck

John, I would say you have MT42 could be a MT 50 but I doubt it

The tag may not be in a real handy location for reading John.  BTDT.  If you have a digicam take it with you when you crawl underneath and snap several pix with the cam aimed in the general direction of the nametag.  You may be surprised what you can read when you zoom in on the pictures on your computer.  Hold the cam as far away from the starter as you can reasonably get it unless you have macro focus capability.

We braved the port & construction traffic today, finally found Blanchard and picked up a gen-u-wine Delco MT39, brand spanking new.  $345 was the best they would do for me but they did have some new Mitsubishis that they would have sold for $289 with a core.  I wanted a spare so a core wasn't going to happen and the Delco was less than the Mitsubishi as long as I didn't have a core. 

Curiously enough this MT39 does have a rotating nose cone, unlike my previous one which I now believe was a Mitsubishi knockoff anyway.  Its also got a significantly larger & heavier motor than the previous one.  It also came with a mounted relay to drive the solenoid so all in all I thought I did well for my $378.44 out the door price, especially considering that the same unit on the other side of the border would have been north of $700 at the very best and likely considerably more. 

When I turned the key after it was all buttoned up the noisemaker lit right up, just like its supposed to do.  Marilyn looked up from whatever it was she was doing and said "that Clifford --- he's worth his weight in gold!"

Starters that Delco Remy makes that would be suitable for our engines at 24v:

These are direct drive motors (read heavy)
37MT- which is reversible- up to 8.3 liters (6-71 is 7 liter)
41MT- up to 9.8 liters (6V-92 is 9 liter)
42MT which is reversible- 14.8 liters (8V-92 is 12 liter)
50MT which is reversible- 29.5 liters

These are gear driven motors:
29MT- up to 8 liters
38MT- up to 12 liters
39MT- up to 16 liters

Good Luck, TomC
