1931 Starter Solenoid wanted

Recommended Posts

Missing original starter solenoid for our 1931 Custom DeLuxe project.  I presume it's an Autolite solenoid. Does anyone have one available, or can anyone tell me what model/photo/other info? 

Thanks !

Of course the switch is incorporated in the switch at the bottom of the column.  Not sure why I was certain I had seen a remote mounted Autolite relay on another car.  Problem solved.  

So, how about a correct Autolite generator cutout?

 

Interior door handle? 

 

Thanks -

Tom is the starter switch the style you pull up on the horn button? I restored a 1932 Master 8 and had a master 8 parts car I sold locally .The body was made into a street rod ,but it had its original steering gear in place when I sold it. I will check and see if the steering column has the switch.

My Standard Auto Electricians book says Autolite #CB-4014 for the cutout. I don't have one. There is a guy selling some on ebay item #253169304091.

A rare Classic model. I believe all the surviving Custom Eights may be counted on two hands.
