Happy New Year, all!

After 28 years of faithful service, the shutdown solenoid on my Perkins 4.236 has finally given out. I am trying to source one locally in Indonesia but cannot find all of the pertinent information--there is nothing on the original unit. A shop here stocks Trombetta solenoids (possibly relabeled Chinese knock-offs) but I cannot choose a model because I do not know the pull of my old solenoid. Does anyone know where i might find these specs? I have not had any luck on the internet finding this number. TAD shows pictures but does not have specifications.

Any help is much appreciated!

Always an option. Right now, I just go below and rock the arm on the injector pump manually. However, solenoids are available here (a surprising number), I just don't know which one to choose without the specs from the original
