I have been putting off working on the starter. I was at the lake again this past weekend. I thought I would tinker with it. I noticed that when I was putting the screw driver across the terminals at the starter, I was not by passing the solenoid. when I did put the screw driver across the 2 terminals that bypassed the solenoid, the starter turned over every time. I guess this means it is the solenoid. Can I replace the solenoid without removing the starter? I attached a pic, but it is not very good. Hard to see which starter I have. My engine is a Mastercraft vortec engine.
thanks for any help
