[QUOTE=CheapThrillB2;1645454]as well, i have replaced more then enough fender mounted solenoids that would stay engaged to the starter and continue to crank after shutting the key down or the engine runs.
in his post he said nothing about it staying engaged. or about it running when the key was off. he said it was spinning, but not throwing out to hit the flexplate. so the solenoid is doing its job by applying power where its needed.
