Perfect match to the original solenoid

The solenoid replacement that I ordered was a perfect match for the original equipment. It was simple to follow the directions and reinstall the solenoid.

Works great

Purchased for my Craftsman Lawn Tractor 917256810. Although this is an updated part # and didn't receive item 2, qty two 4596J (adapter female), my Tractor didn't require them. Part went in and works perfectly.

Solenoid arrived, key switch still in transit

The original had 2 holes for mounting, this one has one hole and a tab to fit the remaining hole.
