I am attempting to do basic wiring on my 54 so I may do my initial engine startup. My question is the solenoid I bought has one middle connection instead of 2. Is this okay? or do I need to buy one with the 2 middle connections that I guess would be for S and I. I appreciate any help I can get.

Jeff if he has original 6 volt he only needs the single pole.the 2 pole was (is) used on 12 volt I fed coil S for starter.the 2 pole will be the easiest if he uses a 12 volt battery and a resister in coil.then use a jumper wires to S to crank I to coil.just need to remove coil jumper to shut off or if it stalls do not leave coil hooked up as it will burn the points if left on when not running.

glad you understood it is hard to put in words something that you can do in minutes having done it over the years :D
