Re: Yanmar Starter
Can I get a quick clarification from somebody? I've looked at this post, diagrams, and other reasearch but want to be sure. I have Universal M-25 with the same "press the starter and nothing happens until you hit it repeatedly". I'm guessing its a voltage drop, etc. I'm going to either run a new red/yellow from starter pluger to starter solenoid or add slave starter solenoid (Cole Hersee).
First, when adding the Cole Hersee, I undertand that the smaller posts go to ground and to the yellow/red. Does it matter which of the two posts I attach these to?
Second, with respect to the bigger posts, I attach an 8 gauge to the empty post on the starter solenoid?? And the other I attach the other directly to the Starter post (ie - not the solenoid)?
The reason that I ask is because language used in a post was unclear to me... It says "Run a No. 8 wire from the starter post to a large terminal on the solenoid" - Does this mean the solenoid ... or the actual starter?
Also, it says "and another No. 8 from the other post to the start terminal on the starter solenoid." - Which one is the "start terminal on the solenoid"? Does this mean the one used by other Reds or the blank one?
btw- Another post says "Connect one of the switched terminals to the battery by building a cable that connects the main battery cable at the starter to the relay. Connect the other switched terminal to the starter solenoid, and you're done."
