How long are you going to be there? Or a better question...how many more starts till you get someplace with decent parts?

If I only had 10 more starts or so till back in the states...I would just keep jumping....

I wish I had a separate starter button in the engine room anyhow as it comes in handy for bleeding, troubleshooting and the first start of the day when I'm down there checking prestart things anyway. It would allow me to see the engine start, idle and smooth while I make sure all looks good.

The real answer though it...what Jay and Forklift posted...any generic starting circuit solenoid will work as it's not carrying full starter loading and the wires on mine are pretty small suggesting something less than 100 amps...in a pinch a similar windlass one would work...
