The one I used from CCOT had one wire. The casing is used as a ground and this in itself can be an issue if you have a bad contact. I perfer to use the idle solenoid that has two wires.

So I have a 1979 - 40 (so 2 wires)...just bought the 2 wire version from CCOT but I see in the pictures the connector is different. (both of my prongs are parallel ...the CCOT one that's on the way has one horizontal and one vertical)

My question is - how will I know what wires to connect to what wires when I splice the old connector to the new idle solenoid? Or maybe it shouldn't matter ?? :meh: ??

I'll reach out to them and see what they have to say (other than "no returns on modified components"). Guess I assumed others had come across this and solved....

just make up your own connector. i used an anderson when i put in a trollhole carb that came with its own solenoid. i crimped QD would be cheapest and easiest.
