I ordered a prestolite solenoid block from CCE. The one I received looks identical to a prestolite, same part #........ Instead of it saying prestolite on the green sticker it says "Ametek".
Anyone know what's up with this? Did prestolite get bought out or is this a cheap knock-off product?

The OLD presto blocks work ok @ 48 volts. I mean the OLD,OLD prestos from like 6 yrs ago. GOOD LUCK w / those new ones. They REALLY SUCK since ametek bought them out. Like 2 out of every 5 are bad straight out of the box. :( I would talk everyone I could outta buyin' em! Go with accurates or motorcrafts :thumbsup:.

Just take one apart and see they got 3 little solenoids in them, then take those apart and see how crappy the contacts are. They suck.
