I cracked the plastic end cap of my starter solenoid.
Options?

I am sure I will have a solenoid somewhere, just a bit busy at the moment; I will check later for you, I'll only want postage money for it

I've put a spare starter on, so not a major issue.  I was more wondering if it would still work.
Not worth trying really I suppose.

The plastic cap holds the main power connectors, so sooner or later it will break more and fail or the wet will get in and corrode the connections. So are you good or do you need another one?
