    Starter “solenoid” lubrication

    Shut off the engines at the fuel dock this morning and when I was ready to leave i couldn’t get the port engine to turn over. My first guess was that the in-gear start prevention switch was flaky, but no amount of fiddling would get the starter to engage. I went to the engine compartment and listened while my son tried the starter switch. Nothing significant happened, but I did hear a faint click. Borrowing a page from my history I gently tapped the magnetic switch housing, and the engine started. 😃

    Now I’m guessing that lubrication is indicated, but I don’t know exactly where to lube, nor do I know what kind of lubricant I should use. I haven’t been able to find any relevant info in any of my documents. Can anyone make recommendations?

    Thanks!

        I just replaced mine with an automotive solenoid for $25. The connector will have to cut and replaced with ring connectors.

          You might want to check and be sure that the auto solenoid is marine acceptable. An arc while energizing the starter the low in the bilge would not be good I'm sure.
