Could well be!!! I also had a Ulysses for a while, but way too tall even for my lanky frame! GONE...

Hi Folks...

Sorted the solenoid today... Some previous fool badly assembled the movable contact washer inside the solenoid so it couldn't spring back once engine had started... T'was sort of "floating" and did touch the fixed contacts on the plastic cover, hence sending the lecky motor in a noisy spin... AS ALWAYS... the only thing I did not check proved to have a problem... NEVER TRUST ANYONE!!!
