The core Denso starter originates from an early 1990's 3S-FE engined Toyota Camry. There was a running change at some point where they moved to having a larger solenoid. Pictured is the early type with small solenoid.

Thanks for the feedback. When I research the Toyota starter there are 2 different styles pop up and I've read about issues with the solenoid.
I'm hoping to get more info on this and appreciate all feedback.
Thanks again
