OReilly's Aviation department to the rescue
Following the sage advice offered by this forum, I purchased a replacement solenoid for my Skytec starter from OReilly's and so far, that fixed it.
The part number: BWD S5613 stands for Borg Warner, part number S5613. $25 and u r done. In the next few days, I will chop open the old solenoid and post photos of the internals.
Big Thank You to all on this forum. This is truly a special community.
