Figure 5C-1C. Neutral Switch solenoid switch

Solenoid switches are designed to close and open electrical circuits electro-magnetically. Switches of this type consist basically of contacts and a winding around a hollow cylinder containing a movable plunger. When the winding is energized by the battery through an external control circuit, the magnetism produced pulls the plunger into the coil. The contact disc attached to the plunger moves against two main switch contacts closing the circuit.

Figure 5C-1D. Test Circuit for 1964-65 Servi-car Solenoid

The 1964-65 Servi-car solenoid switch is permanently assembled. Repair parts are not sold. If this switch becomes defective, it must be replaced. The control circuit wires are connected to small terminals. The motor and battery circuit wires are connected to heavy terminals.

The Electra-Glide 1967 Sportster, and 1966 Servi-car solenoid switch individual parts are replaceable as shown in exploded view, Figure 5C-1E, below. The control circuit wire from handlebar starter button is connected to small terminal stud. Battery cable must be connected to the large, longest stud and starter motor cable is connected to the large, shorter stud. If cables are reversed, solenoid coils will remain in circuit and drain battery. See solenoid internal wiring diagram. Figure 5C-1G.
