Member wvbuzzmaster has an older gilson. It's a smaller unit I believe, but he may be able to help. Many of the electrical parts are interchangeable between brands, it's possible you will find a cheaper alternative.

I know on my older wards 15 hydro's starter solenoid (which I think you are talking about) was no good when I got it. It looked alot like a ford starter relay That I have used alot. So I mounted a ford starter relay Standard motor products part number ss581 to it and it works like a dream. hope this helps.
