I have a 6.3544m engine. There is a small electrical solenoid just above and fwd of the starter and solenoid which is wired into the starter solenoid. What is the name of that part? I get power to that but not to the starter solenoid.
Just checked voltage to see where the power stops.
What you describe is a starter relay. Used to get power closer to the starter solenoid, This is the relay that the key switch would close and energize the starter.
