Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

working on a 62 bug 6V. hot battery. almost new starter. Starter drags, not getting enough voltage from switch. Thinking of going the ford booster relay but not sure how to go about it. Any ideas or better suggestions?

Ive seen 2 different sized bushings for the starter. It doesnt take much slop to adversely affect the starter

I just installed a simple 4 pin relay in my Jetta and it worked great. Starter can now get a good 12V without having to travel through 10 miles of extra wire.

hey pete the bushing will not interchange, 12v and 6 v are very different in size. They also make conversion bushings 6 to 12 and 12 to 6 later mark d
