This pull-type continuous-duty solenoid is nominally rated for 24V but works well with 12VDC at 120mA. Measures 1-1/8" square x 1" with a pair of 3/16" quick-disconnect terminals. The plunger is 1-11/16" x 1/4" dia with a slotted cotter pin hole. Working distance is 1-1/4". Has a 116 Ohm coil. Made in the USA by Guardian Electric, part #A420-065454-00.
Cute but it is just a linear actuator, not a solenoid relay so it cannot be used to replace the weak starter relay.I'm not sure where to best put this, but here it is. Something for the fabricators around here. At under $4 I might have to pick up a couple.

Do you have refrigerant guages? If you do, a place to start would be to charge the evaporator coil to 40 degrees.Since this is a prototype, I don't know what the optimum charge of R134a will be. Regular automotive systems run at varying speeds, this one will run a 2500-3000 RPM constantly.
Yes, I have a set of R134a manifold gauges. 40 F at the evaporator during the hottest weather would be perfect.Do you have refrigerant guages? If you do, a place to start would be to charge the evaporator coil to 40 degrees.
