Vitesse MK2 

Hi purchased a High Torque Starter Motor from the Club

I understand this new starter has an integral starter solenoid , when swopping over is it best to remove existing solenoid as did read somewhere the old solenoid could be used saving some wiring

I forget if I bought the club's Hi torque starter or Canley's, but I measured the solenoid current (as opposed to the starter itself) and it was 40A - yes, forty amps! So if you run the starter direct to the battery like I did, I STRONGLY recommend you take the new solenoid to the starter contacts on the old one, instead of direct to the ignition switch. I should think pulling this sort of current through the old switch would do it no good at all!

Cheers, Richard
