Calling people out isn't very civil either. No worries though. This is a fun place to hang and we all seem to have each other's backs as VAF'rs.

One interesting addition to the SkyTec discussion.

SkyTec does not seem to provide the same four terminal starter solenoid as Vans with an "I" terminal.

Default Great Forum to learn from

Scott takes his time to try and help us amateurs out and does a nice job. We don?t have to take everything as gospel, that?s our call. I wish I could add 10% of the help he provides (and others). Taking all of one minute to take a shot at him seems irresponsible. Getting input from people who actually do something and not take tests for a living is priceless.

Default Starter engaged and "I" contactor terminal

I was planning to use the "I" terminal to supply a "starter engaged" lamp. It seems that using "I" to engage the starter motor solenoid would preclude that lamp usage.

Does that seem correct? Or perhaps it would work with a big resistor in series with the lamp and ground?

So, can anyone update the information in this thread? All of the links go nowhere at this point (probably since Hartzell bought Sky-tec). I would like to know whether one can install the LS starters using the internal solenoid only, i.e., without a separate starter solenoid.
