Re: Od solenoid with a key on the plunger

I removed the solenoid from a T85 from a 57 Ford that looked like your top picture. Keyway keeps it from rotating. Looks the same as my T86 that came from a 56 Ford. If it locks in when the bolt...

Re: 55 crown Victoria hel0 needed

I have seen those in an ad. Reproduction part. Don't remember where since I didn't need them. Pretty pricey. If I can find the ad or the supplier I will post it.
