save yourself some money and go get a lawn mower solenoid and find a way to mount it yourself. I have done a johnson outboard and a tigershark jet ski this way with no problems.

the top two wires dont matter a solenoid is just a switch when you send juice to the solenoid via the small wire it connects the two on the top

Had the same problem, but was my fault for bypassing the ballist resistor (my bad). Anyway, I fried the coil. Read all the posts and bought new 12 volt coil (it has been converted before I got it 13 years ago). New points, condenser, cap, rotor. Now it is just my timing is a little off, but I have strong sparky but not enough to fry my coil again.
If anything, keep the ballist resistor. it is needed to drop the voltage to the coil so it doesn't fry.

just put a new starter in my 1993 chevy 454 and now i'm not getting fire, the old starter solenoid was sticking and melted the neg battery cable. I'm wondering if that also burned something else out?
