Anyone have any ideas on a generic or DIY solenoid setup? This winch does not use Warn-type (Ford starter) solenoids, so I can't just swap those in. Thanks - Steve
I'm sure SM doesn't manufacture those solenoids themselves. Look closely at the actual part and see if you can find any type of manufacturer name or part number. Even if you can't find a number, I would then look in the McMasters catalogue and find a unit with similar specs. You can probably find the exact replacement if you dig deep enough.
