Dat interesting right thar..Back in the 90s, we called them thar Fords Starter solinoids and they were mounted on the fender, and when you wanted to bump the engine with out using the key you would short the contacts with a screwdriver.

Also it was a high fail part in the car and made easy money at the Dealership for no start no crank issues. I replaced a ton and broke a few myself LOL
