Hello Jacqueline Iannuzzi,

The actual solenoid on that car is on the side of the fender ...
Large lugs are for the BATTERY & STARTER Cables.

The small terminals If one comes directly from the "S" terminal of your IGNITION SWITCH...

In a simpler time the "other" terminal was the "B" power to the ignition switch
(you should NOT have the 2 wire solenoid (I don't think)).

Hope this helps

Where is the neutral saftey switch on a 1955 thunderbird 6 volt


Hello Jacqueline Iannuzzi,

On the floor end of the shift column
before it goes through the fire-wall.
(standing on your head)

Big CAUTION ... DISCONNECT THE Battery
lest you be driving around... upside down
(like I did... (no accidents... but that not in my hands)).

Hope this helps

1955 olds 88 hei ignition wiring to key and ignition system


Original system has a resistor wire between coil + and ignition key, to reduce voltage and thus increase amps to give fatter spark and increase fuel mileage. For HEI system, this resistor wire must not be used, so run new primary wire straight from switch "run" to coil +. There should already be a wire from the starter solenoid to the coil + to supply full 12 volts when cranking to give higher voltage spark to plugs to help jump the gap better for use while starting. The MSD web site has much more info.
