Welcome to the world of diesel starters. An ankle holding adventure for all who have had the priveledge.

No one rebuilds solenoids that I know of. And, you are better off biting the bullet and getting a good starter/solenoid than playing piece mail and having the thing fail when you need it to work.

Theres a auto electric shop here that rebuilds whole starters and alternators.

But yeah, Diesals need hefty starters because of the high compression ratio, so they are very spendy.
