    Is the solenoid getting the right amount of amps?

    My Mechanic says yes. I'll have to get my Son inlaw to check for me.. Do you know the Minimum amps needed compared to the old starter? Old starter works fine. My Battery in new & very big. Ignition is new & I have a push button bypass start as well.

    The new starters just do not hold up. I've had three with issues, usually will not engage as if they need shimmed like an old Chevy starter.

    German made John Deere tractors have a similar looking solenoid. I think the tractor was a 2030.

    Should be the same as: https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo...289145&jsn=674

    Fits a lot of BMWS, Volvos and Specifically the:

    SAAB 900 2.5L 1994-1997
    SAAB 9000 9-5 3.0L V6 1999-2003

    I bought the one for the SAAB to replace a bad one I had on a used 2.4L starter I had.

    Which if memory serves is the same motor as the Catera

    I have used a Catera starter, it requires a bit of modification and sticks the flywheel but it works as my bench starter.

    Presume most Owners purchased starter from Opel GT Source.
    I would email OPGTS or telephone for information.

    Not the answer that you are looking for, but eventually I will switch back to a Ford solenoid for OEM starter.
    I should have cables and solenoid from one of my previous GT. Does require different battery cables.
    Find a heavy duty solenoid that is NOT Made in China.
