Greenmech 130 Solenoid Issues

Recommended Posts

One of the starter solenoids on my Greenmech 130 has just started getting intermittent. The spade has a loose connection so having to wiggle it to get the electrical current to go through. There are 2 different solenoids connected to each other. One has 1 spade and the other has 2 spades. It’s the one with 2 spades that is dodgy but all sites only sell the one with 1 spade. 

Should it have 2 different solenoids? Seems a bit strange to me. It’s the 23hp Vanguard. 



Any help would be much appreciated.

looks to me that someone has replaced the original solenoid with an aftermarket one, as its cheaper than genuine, and that is now failing. The aftermarket looks to me to have a separate earth the black wire, the white or yellow one being the starter wire.
