On my single Courage, I mis-handled it getting it on the chassis I guess and broke the wire on the fuel shut-off.  Wire unplugs from one out of engine, but is short. Also, the wire is broken only about 1/2" from the selinoid. SO, can I solder that back together, or will it be too hot for coil or whatever is inside? I could use crimps, but thought solder would be better if I can work it that small. OR, other choice is just go buy another selinoid. I haven't checked on prices of those yet, but bet it'll scare ya.

Sounds like your talking about the fuel solenoids, I guess you could try and splice the wires back together and see if they work. All the solenoid does is move up to cut the fuel supply off if it works you should hear it click when the key is turned in the on position.

Using a pencil type solder iron tin the two wires first.  Soldering paste helps to clean the wires for better solder absorbent.  Then lay them together and blend the solder together.  Heat shrink on first of course. Good luck.

I cut the end off of the plunger and installed an in-line shut off.     Rick
