    I just replaced my B solenoid and my C solenoid on my E- 60 Meyer pump. My question is the new C solenoid does not completly cover the C cartridge valve nut and there is a small space. The old one completely coverd the valve like the new B soleniod in the picture. Do you think this will be ok with snow,water and salt???
    My replacement patrs were #15358 C solenoid and #15381 C cartidge vave.

    The new C valve nut is thinker than the old one causing the solenoid to ride high.

    I'm wondering about this too. I have the same issue with the new valve I put in. It works fine, but like you said how much crap is going to get in there.

    It will be fine , the cartridge is sealed.

    I would , however , use a slight bit of anti sieze inside the coil to prevent corrosion .

    Were these genuine Meyer parts or aftermarket?

    15358 is the Cartridge and coil , 15381 is just the cartridge , just wondered why you needed both of those #'s

    Nasty you may have just answerd my question with your question. After digging in the trash I did not by a seperate C valve and Soleniod i bought a seperate B valve and Soleniod both Meyers which sit correctly. The new C Solenoid assembly the dealer sold me was (SAM) aftermarket #1306055 which replaces Meyer #15358.
    So maybe you or someone else can confirm that this is the problem?
    I will also call my dealer back to inform him.

    PS..I did speak with the Meyer tech on the phone and he said that it should work which it does i just don't want to run into trouble later. I want the real parts.

    Thank You

    It will be fine , the SAM valves usually sit like that , which is the reason I asked if they were Meyer or aftermarket .

    Don't sweat it, antisieze it and go make some $$

    I changed my C coil noth parts the other night it wouldn't come off it took 20 minutes to get the cover off. Thats how bad it was, the new one site like your picture.

    Where do you put the antiseize?

    If the coil was tight on the valve stem then the stem is swelled, which is a very very common issue on the Meyer pumps. So replace the valve too before it begins to cause angle issue. Which it will. :nod:
