Gene, ground the case of the solenoid and momentarily touch a hot wire to the center terminal ( #4) on the solenoid. The solenoid should click and the shaft will extend. They draw about 7 amps when energized but the current draw will drop to about 4 amps when the holding coil kicks in. I don't think the solenoids are polarity sensitive but the ground is positive when installed.
