    Nope. Just use the one mentioned in the Doghead sticky. You can find the sticky listed in the "Helpful Threads" section (see the top of the forum) and in the Wiki.

    Non standard parts in CUCV?
    You offend against the pure OEM design!
    Evaluate self! Reflect and repent!

    Or... maybe not.

    It turned out to be a fried starter solenoid and an issue with the spindle of the starter (was missing a bearing or something and the shaft was loose). Ordered a new starter from a shop that rebuilds them and it fires right up. Turns out the shop owner was a mechanic in the Army and knew a lot about the system. His warning to me was to never wear a ring or watch when working on a 24v system. ”Could fry off a finger” if contact was made! You might be able to replace the solenoid only. Easy fix really, just took time to figure out the issue. Folks on this thread were very helpful!
    Good luck
