Does anyone have any pictures showing an original starter solenoid, with the glyptal sealer on the top rivet for a late 66/early 67 application?  There were ones posted previously on this forum, but unfortunately they are all gone/black boxes/photobucket removed.  Head knock

The Gliptal insulating sealer oozed out around the revit as the bracket and solenoid body were riveted together. It more often would typically be around the sides of the rivet and not on top .

I had a chance to help the team judge the 67s at SAAC 42.  This, by no means, qualifies me as an expert, and on the of the things that Bob Gaines taught me was about this particular topic, and how the color should be spread from the outside of the rivet versus being on top of the rivet.

After SAAC 42, I searched all over to find the most correct looking paint/color, and I settled on using model airplane paint - Testors "Gloss Sunburst" Paint:  UPC:  75611 11130.

Here's a pic of how I painted the top of my solenoid based on judging and Bob's feedback using a small brush from the local hobby shop; which is where I bought the paint:



Hope this helps!  Chug a Lug

Have seen some examples with very very little sealant  ooze while others enough to cover the rivet and surrounding area. Even enough to the point where it appears that the worker wiped off the excess 

Here are some original examples to add to the C6 version shown above  Not the C7 version is a different supplier that the typical one seen  so different style of center rivet.  Sure I've got over 100 samples Wink of variations and types


Allot



None visible



C6 version

Thanks for all the pics.  I found this product 'Red Insulating Varnish by MG Chemicals.  It seems to be what was described, and it was available in a 2.8oz bottle.

That is what I have used before when out of the larger can of glyptal I get from Eastwood. Of course there is a range but typically less is seen IMO. Less is more next time .

It's on ebay too, just search 'insulating varnish'

Seems a bit too much used on the top of that solenoid in the pic.
