Starter Solenoid ?s

So I have many wires on the power stud on my starter solenoid. I've heard that a solenoid with, well, a longer stud, exists. Any idea what car(s) this is from, and where I can get one?

Maybe you could mount an accessory fuse block next to the solenoid. Some of those wires could probably use a fuse anyway.

The older I get, the smarter Dad was.

NM.. made it work with the solenoid.

The wires were all the OEM wires (fusible linked), plus a new alternator power wire (fused), amp wire (fused), and my extra fuse box (fused, obviously).

You can add a threaded coupler to the solenoid end, and then run a bolt through the other end of the coupler, with a flat washer on each end of the coupler. This will give you alot of extra room for adding connectors. 8)
