"High Current" Starter Relay, Base & Harness


I added the HC Starter Relay Harness to eliminate passing high inrush current to starter solenoid through the ignition switch based on some comments I read in the forum.  My own current draw tests appeared to be very low/minimal.  However, should the starter solenoid become marginal, the higher draw of the solenoid could damage the ignition switch...imho.  I bought the HC Starter relay, base, fuse and harness from Greg Bender at This Old Tractor.  It is s nice easy install..the relay base slides onto the existing starter relay base, Red to Batt+, Black to Batt-, spade connctors are routed to starter - Female spade to starter, Male spade to exiting starter solenoid feed wire.

That looks pretty tidy!  :thumbsup:

The fuse holder base looks to have mounting tabs, does it mount to the relay bank as well?

Hi Speedfrog,


IDK if the fuse would mount along side the relay base, i didn't try it because I ran out of room ...only enough space in the relay bank area for 6.  I ty-rap'd the fuse to the frame along with other fuses on the left side.  You can see it in my pic of "under the seat".
