My intention is to install a Ford solenoid on 85 EC with the fusible links being moved to the Ford solenoid (battery side) and the starter side of solenoid being wired for the starter with 1/0 cable and a 10 gauge wire to the solenoid atop the starter (the "GM Starter"). My question is where should I locate the Ford solenoid. I would prefer the Ford solenoid close to the battery and not on the firewall. I would prefer the Ford solenoid not be installed on the fender-well. I have looked at installing the Ford solenoid on the inside of the fender but it does not appear that I have sufficient clearance. I am looking for input on where to locate the Ford solenoid. Let me know your thoughts.
