I'll give you some ideas when I get home tonight around midnight. I'm off running drugs now. The solenoid is inside. You just have to remove the top of the carb. Your background is a lot like mine except that I'm also a retired Electrical Engineer. I'll post back in about 5 hours. Knee problems really suck. I've got two of the Six Million Dollar Man titanium hips. Good as new and so will you.
