Fender Mount Starter Solenoid (Switch) ?

My problem is that the lugs on my starter solenoid are to short, with all the accessories I have off the lug I can barely get a couple of threads on it. I am going to switch to a mini starter and am installing a line lock, so that is ever more I have to fit on that lug.

What are my options, this is what I found so far;

1) I know that some one makes a solenoid with longer lugs but haven’t found that one yet
2) The Solenoids I did find (auto zone, advanced) have an additional smaller lug on the bottom, but I don’t know what that one is for. Is it a 12V source, If so could I just move some of the accessories to that lug?
3) Finally I saw in an old 5.0 magazine, they did a battery relocation and they added a neat little block with a single lug that they moved all the accessories to, then ran a single lead to the solenoid, but I can’t find that issue, and I don’t know who makes it.

Please forgive my electrical ignorance, if there is something simple or easer let me know.

Thanks,

I did search but it wasn't working

The small stud you are referring to is for the older points ignitions where in the start mode the points will get a full 12(battery) volts. I would recommend stopping at a car audio shop and see if they sell an accessory power strip of some kind. They may use something of this sort on high end stereo installations.

Stop by the local dealer and have them bring a replacement out for you. I put a new one on mine last year and the revised part number had longer lugs by easily 1/4".

It was cheap too.

Thanks,

I know they make one, just need to find it. I need to find that old mag and see what they used.

It was a nice single post terminal.

So it is Ford who makes them with the longer lugs.

Good, I'll go pick one up tonight

Okay, just looked.

Mine has 3/4" long lugs on it and has a Motorcraft part number F5TU 11450 BA. Looks like a revised 1995 part number.

I think this is what you're looking for.
