    Default 4.3 Starter Solenoid Clicks but does not start

    Hi guys,

    Recently been having an issue with my 89 Rinker with a 4.3. When I turn the key to cranking position I can hear the solenoid clicking but does not spin the starter.

    I did a bit of research and it obviously seems like a starter solenoid but the starter solenoid i found through research is AC Delco P/n 1114583. That looks like a solenoid on the actual starter.

    The solenoid that i can hear clicking is mounted in front of what would be the drivers side head on the motor which looks like a normal solenoid.

    Not sure if that is starter as well? Just want to make sure I'm replacing the correct noid.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks
    -Joe

    Thanks Don, went ahead and ordered a slave solenoid! $20.99 and should be back together.
