I had previously written that I had diagnosed by starting problem to the
starter assist solenoid. I purchased a new one (only $13.00) and attempted
to install in this weekend. I started off being a very simple remove and
replace procedure. However, it didnít turn out that way. My wiring is so
brittle that any stress on it causes it to break apart. The wire on the
blind side (stern) of the solenoid had broken. I donít know if I did it
during the removal or whether that was the problem in the first place.
Bottom line, I need to replace all the wiring. Iím hoping to do some
patching to get me through the summer then do a complete replace over the


Here are my questions:


1. Is there a wiring bundle/harness available or am I
looking at individual wire replacement? I looks like a bundle is in there
right know because it is clearly machine wrapped.

2. Is this a DIY project? Iím pretty capable; but, I donít
have the desire or skill to remove major engine components in order to get
to connections.
