Default Re: Onan starters parts and interchange

Hi,

Thanks for the info. I am hoping to get some clarification. From what I'm reading, my starter is the one with the cast bit, making it the PrestoLite, with the solenoid for the prestolite accumax 10-ch965. I'm attaching the picture of my 60s era DJB (I think, unfortunately I pick it up a few years ago no tags, plates or serials of any kind visible)

If anyone can confirm that this is the correct model of solenoid, I would sure appreciate it. I've already purchased the wrong one a couple of times.

Thank you.
