Continuous duty solenoid, part# ECHLIN ST-85, (~$35 NAPA)

This is from some notes I kept when researching the subject a little while back. No firsthand knowledge so take it for what it's worth.

Does anyone know what this is out of?
I did a search on their website and they say that product code does not exist.
and they keep asking me what vehicle it is out of.

Re: Continuous Hold Solenoid

Napa's website is worthless unless your looking for vehicle specific stuff as you found out.

Continuous Duty Solenoids are not commonly used on light cars & trucks they are mainly used on heavy trucks, OTR trucks (semis), RV's, and farm equipment and have many differant uses. They are really just a extra HD relay that can handle full battery amps.

So to find them your best bet is to go to a parts store that caters to them. I know Napa has them and in their book it has a picture and specs of them listed so your best bet is to drop by your local Napa and ask them to look in the catalog.
