Engine Solenoid

Recommended Posts

bowhunt4life

I am picked up this 16hp Briggs, just couldn't resist more power. I plan on putting on a SG and putting in my B212 but prior to installation I am not sure about a starter solenoid. I am aware of the other mods I will need to make but am stuck on the solenoid.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for which solenoid I would need?

The individual solenoid is not very critical. I like using the solenoids off older Ford automobiles. I have also used solenoids from the cheap Box Store lawnmowers. A solenoid is just a switch. If it triggers and handles the starter current load, then it should work fine.

Below is what I use for solenoids on the Briggs. Probably the same one Rod isreferring to. Not sure why you ever would want to put a starter generator on it though after you try a ring gear type starter.

Get the style that RayS recommended as it has a lower profile and less abpt to cause some shorting when the hood is mounted if you're going to mount it where the factory did. There are basically two relay styles, three terminal case grounded and four terminal post grounded and either will work fine for the HB.

This summer I replaced the factory solenoid on my '88 4212, when I found it to be intermittent, and causing the bendix gear to hang up on the ring gear. I used the following as a replacement (Auto Zone.http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Gold-Solenoid-Switch/_/N-9riee?itemIdentifier=184962_0_0_This model is a grounded case One of the small terminals is for accessories.(open when energizing the starter. Last week I found the factory solenoid on my recently acquired '90 4212 to be defective. So I guess this spare (intended to go into the '68 or '69 2110) may be used for a replacement.

On those old Ford type solenoids, the two small post are usually marked S and I. The I post is for by-passing the ignition resistor and suppling full 12V to the coil when the engine is cranking. The S goes to the start post on the ignition switch.
