Will try to post a photo. The guy at the shop said that he has worked on a bunch of P30ís and this was a first.

Brad, I bought a Dremel just for this purpose, need to get to a campgroud with 110.

I don't recognize that solenoid. It's definitely to small to handle the starting current of a starter motor. Reminds me more of something in the emissions system.

That looks like it is the relay between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid. this image shown mine in the upper right corner.

That is it. Not sure why a relay is needed there, does not seem like a heavy draw on that side of the solenoid.

I think it was an afterthought when they found the ignition switch could not handle the starter solenoid and the solenoid that bridges the house & chassis batteries during starting
