What is the best starter solenoid to buy to replace the OEM one?
I've read a lot of threads on this topic, and people have used or recommended a range of solenoids including from snowplows, cars, lawnmowers, tractors, etc. Some suggested solenoids bolt right in, others need modifications for different reasons.
More than one person has said the starter motor will draw more than 100 amps.
This post especially has my attention:
"the 350 amps were for about the first 2 seconds and leveled off to 220 amp continuous after that".
Question one: If the starter motor draws 350 amps, even briefly, and then 220 amps afterward, doesn't it make sense to have a solenoid that is rated for at least 350 amps?
Question two: What specific solenoid (part number, with a link to where to buy would be great) will work with no or very little modification?
As always, thanks in-advance for useful answers!
