Reverse solenoid
« on: October 05, 2006, 07:30:32 AM »
I am in need of a reverse solenoid for a spicer 4 speed in a 1962 GMC 4106.  Any ideas on where to get one?

Thanks
John

You can get one from Luke @ US Coach.

But first, you should make sure your's isn't repairable. On my old '06, I took my ailing one apart and sanded the mating surfaces, put on a new boot from Luke and then it pulled like a champ. Also check your positive wire and grounding.

HTH,

I agree with what Brian said, first check to see if yer's is servicable. If not call Luke! (oops call Luke anyway he's great with advice and parts!)  BK  ;D

Space Ship and Knuckle must be slightly askew today - they forgot to give you Luke's phone number, in case you don't have it:

1-888-262-2434

Call between 9 -5 Eastern, M - F.

Hey Knuckle - I told  bunny to set the parking brake!  Doesn't that count?   :D

BTW, did you want her to use classroom chalk to chock the wheels?

Never mind, let's chuck this before it goes futher downhill - w/o choking!   :D :D :D

I thought he was telling her to caulk the wheels. Couldn't figure out if she should use polyurethane, silicon, or butyl rubber!! ???

One thing for sure, when a YL ventures into this madhouse of nuts, she sure gets a lot of attention and replies. LOL

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride
