    my 55SS has 8v92’s with 24 volt starters and all other systems are 12 volt. It has a relay/switch that delivers 24 volts to the starter and I’d like to have a spare onboard. Can anybody help me with a product name or model? I can find anything legible on the units themselves.

    Thanks in advance.

    I forget who makes them, but they're initially designed for a diesel truck and NAPA is where I have bought them before. Take a picture of it and any specs to your local NAPA store and they'll get them.

    There are no legible markings on it. They’ve faded. I brought it to the local small engine repair guy and he had something similar but thinks it would be under Powered for my needs. I’ll try Napa. Thanks.

    I googled 24VDC marine solenoid and came up with a few including Cole-hersee, John Deer and Cat. Maybe that will help you find one.

    It's a series-parallel solenoid. Amazon has a listing HERE
