It was included in one of Dunk's old Gear Box Kits.  I don't see any MFG or Part number on it. Sorry.

While on that topic, I "DID" find out that it is a 24V not 12V solenoid.  I was using 12V and as such the solenoid would pull in but without much force which required me to reduce the spring force of the return spring. It also caused the solenoid to draw too much current from my 12V bus which resulted in funny things happening to my MFD displays and other devices that operate on 12V.

Time to remove it and do some rewiring and reworking.
