C-81 1979 replacement solenoid Napa part #??

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

I have rebuilt my 1979 C-81, and with the electrical system not working, I have been advised that the most likely issue is the solenoid being faulty. I want to replace it with a new one.

 

According to the parts manual, the solenoid I need is part number 8658. Does anyone know what part number I need to order if getting this selenoid from Napa?

 

Your assistance is appreciated,

Go to any parts store and tell them you need a solenoid for a 1980 Ford truck. Very heavy duty and will probably be the last one you'll ever buy. Fits perfectly too.

Make sure you get the correct # of terminals or take a picture of the wires on your old one. Some Ford applications have a 4 post solenoid and some 3

Big Box stores  (Lowes, Home Depot) usually have solenoids.  They are pretty generic.  Only thing, sometimes it may have 2 small terminals instead of 1.  It will still work you only use one. (Usually stamped S or +)  The other maybe marked I you don not use that one,

Some of those solenoids with the two terminals the second one is the ground. They are not grounded thru the mounting plate.

Just a little more info to consider.:)
