Are there any viable alternatives to the oe pressure solenoid on the 900?
Lots of new ones available for other marks, but are we stuck with sourcing good 2nd hand unit?

Guessing no one has tried likes of the 95 solenoid valve or there isn't an obvious workable alternative.
I know i can use an mbc but want to keep the apc protection.

Does anyone have a standard 900 solenoid available for a reasonable price?

Thanks

Whats wrong with your original one?
Usually very reliable and if not working can often be coaxed back to life with a good flush through of carb cleaner.
Have you wired it directly across a battery to see if it clicks?
Suspect the later 2 wire versions operate on a different frequency range but never tried one.

Suspect coils given up.
After 30 years can be forgiven.
Hence my original question regarding a non mbc alternative.
Google has not been my friend in this instance :(
