Sorry to bother you guys again, but I have another question. The starter solenoid has 3 posts, 2 of them bolt type and one a clip on. My question is one of the bolt type goes to the pos. post to the battery, what attaches to the other? Thank you all in advance. The engine is an Onan p218.

One connects to your battery and the other runs straight to your starter.

Ben, mine is a newer 316, the starter and solenoid are one. I know one goes to the battery, I don't know where the other goes, unless its a ground. Thanks, Tom.

Ah, bad assumption on my part.  I was picturing a separate solenoid.

 

In that case, you have an automotive style starter.  Solenoid on top of the motor, right?

 

You still have to have one terminal to the battery, one to the starter to give hot battery juice to the brushes.  When you apply power to that "clip on" style terminal feeding off the key, it triggers the connection internally in the solenoid to connect those two "bolt" terminals.

 

Take a look here at a picture of a new one: http://www.ebay.com/...e94a159&vxp=mtr

Look on www.jdparts.com then search parts catalog (half way down left side of page) with 316.  Make sure you have your serial number handy.  This is what I came up with but make no guarantees that it is right.
