Ford solonoid for a chevy

A little help guy's if you would. please correct me if Im wrong on how the ford solonoid works. Power comes from the battery to one side of the solonoid, when the key is turned on the [I] terminal on the solonoid has power and when the key is turned to start from there power goes down thru the neutral safety switch to the [

power goes down to the [S] terminal on the solonoid and out the side to the starter. so the only time the ford starter has power on it is when it is activated by the ignition switch turned to start. bill

Kinda.....There is a small stud and a larger stud and two very large studs.

The small stud goes to the coil (not sure on this).

The larger stud goes to the Start position on the ing switch.

The very large studs..... one goes to the battery and the other goes to the stater.

The body of the solenoid must be attached to a ground.

When you apply voltage to the larger stud, the solenoid functions and allows voltage to go to the starter.

S terminal is from "start" posistion of ignition switch. As EOD said, it energizes the coil , which activates the solenoid. One large terminal is for battery connection, the other side powers the starter when the solenoid is energized.
The "I" terminal is to power the Ignition system while cranking the starter. It bypasses the resistor circuit of the ignition system , to supply the ignition with full battery power to aid in starting (points) . On the duraspark II systems it retards the ignition timing VIA the white wire, to aid in starting the engine.
