Default 912UL Starter Solenoid is metric...opps

FOR THE SEARCH ENGINE and our information base:

I messed up... with zero markings on the starter solenoid, I never thought that the one supplied in our kits for the 912UL just might be European sourced with the engine. The factory kit did not have metric nuts for it. I had loosely hand tightened American SAE nuts on the terminals as I was wiring to it. Of course tightening the first of these nuts stripped it. Expensive error. $137 later.

The company I bought the new one from (a bunch of crazy pilots) took 10 days to get around to shipping it. I then found out that the solenoid originally came from US Auto Electric for $85. Interesting. Nice $51 markup.

Part #182800-1950

In summary, these terminals take a 6mm nut. I will now return to our regularly scheduled Kitfox building program.
