I INSTALLED A HYDRAULIC SET UP IN MY 70 IMPALA AND I DON'T KNOW WHERE 2 MOUNT MY SILENOIDS. i DON'T WANT MY SILENOID TO LOOK UGLY AND I DON'T WANT THEM IN A PLACE THAT IS GOING TO BE HARD TO REACH PLEASE HELP WITH SOME IDEAS OR SOME PICTURES. MY SET UP HAS 3 BATTERIES IN EACH SIDE AND I HAVE THE PUMPS IN THE MIDDLE SITTIN SIDEWAYS

I mounted mine on top of the battery hold down so I coul change them easier.
Where ever you put them. just make sure they are well grounded.

i would only do that if u have a cable comin from the battery rack that goes to the tie downs. the threadalls that most commonly used for the tie downs are zinc... then u got a nut holding ur tiedown to it... not my favorite place to put solenoids in my opinion... i prefer them on the rack

just a lil something to think about. playin with all this voltage, we are using 12v solenoids and 12v motors. yet we are running 36v and up thru these components. inbetween ur batteries and pumps are the solenoids. if u neglect those inexpensive components by not giving them a proper ground then expect expensive damaging results....give ur components the best possbile ground you can get... things last a whole lot longer
