Violent Cutoff (I mean really violent) Update

Actually, it worked great during the winter after I'd
disconnected/reconnected the wiring to it, but then, just before our trip
to Colorado, it quit again.

So I was looking through my parts stash to get ready for some work on my
V8, when I ran across a brand new  WGFV (solenoid) that I'd acquired some
time back with some other stuff, so I switched it for Ingo's and now I've
got my usual 1.5-1.6 boost showing and nice, smooth operation.  Must be
that Ingo's was for some other application.  It has an "H" suffix on the
part number, whereas the part number on the new one has a "J" suffix as
specified in ETKA.

. As to Ingo's WGFV--I guess it's possible it might be a kind
