Displayed on this page
are most of the commonly used Starter Motor Solenoids, Delco
and Lucas styles, as used on Perkins engines. We will be
adding information covering the 100 and 500 series in due
course. Further down the page you will find Stop Solenoids
and Electric Shutoffs.
Please call us with the numbers found on your solenoid and use
the reference number shown below for the style mounting you
require. You can also request information by e-mail by

If the solenoid is not
installed correctly and a failure is encountered the manufacturer’s
warranty will not cover a replacement unit. It is very important to
ensure that the plunger is fully bottomed when final linkage is
connected. If the solenoid is restricted from bottoming out in
the retract/energized mode then it will burn out in approximately 30
seconds. Insufficient current will also result in failure.
TO DETERMINE PLUNGER HAS BOTTOMED
On units with an auxiliary
third terminal, connect a
voltmeter or appropriate
light (voltage rating)
between auxiliary and "+"
terminals. When the solenoid
is energized and the plunger
bottoms, the voltmeter will
indicate the battery voltage
or the light is energized.
VISUAL Method – Push the
plunger to the full bottomed
position and measure the
plunger extension length
from the solenoid body
before the linkage is
connected. Connect linkage
and energize the solenoid.
If the plunger has fully
bottomed, the plunger
extension lengths should be
ELECTRIC SHUT OFFS
units shown below are three commonly used E.S.O. solenoids for CAV
or BOSH Rotary Injection Pumps. These are not polarity sensitive
but are voltage sensitive. Must be energized to run.
You can not bleed the
injector pump without energizing this solenoid. It stops the flow of
fuel to the pump.
