Have you asked the local NAPA? Usually overnight delivery on most common parts.

Look for a rebuild shop in the area. A quick internet search will find one. They can usually be rebuilt in a few hours in my experience.

Ditto NAPA or a rebuilder for a Cat engine.

Ended up changing the solenoid. Would rather have a new starter since it looked original / old. In the mean time I dropped part of the French press into the water. There are snakes in these waters so I’m not diving in. I am in the dog house with the crew! Hard to shop w/o car and Uber poor. One crisis after another.

NAPA and local auto/truck parts houses usually deliver to the local mechanics at no cost.


This saves the shop the time to go get a part ,local delivery is a part of a very competitive business.
