I need to replace a solenoid on this engine. I have identified the make as a cole-hersee solenoid, but I can't figure out if it is continuous or intermittent duty. I believe the solenoid to be a fuel shut off, but am not sure. It is located just below the instrument cluster. The solenoid has no part numbers aside from the manufacturer.

Is the control wire running to this solenoid connected to the "run" side or the "start" side of the ignition switch? Test this with a test light or a voltmeter. That will determine whether it is a continuous duty type. Where does the circuit being controlled connect to on the engine?

OK I did some limited checking today, but it is -25 deg C and the machine is outside so it was quick. I have the battery disconnected right now, but I get contnuity between the power side and the murphy switches and also to the starter. I couldn't easily get access to the ignition switch and will leave that for a few days until it warms up.
