Are you looking for a starter solenoid with the pushbutton on the bottom like the 6v? They may exist, but I don't know of a source. You can get a 12v solenoid that looks and operates like the 6v, but it doesn't have the push button.

Looks like BOB shows what you are looking for. My only concern would be the price, seems a bit on the cheap side to me. If it works well, I would be interested in some feedback.

I can't tell from the description, but sounds like it may require a hot vs ground input to activate. At least that is how I understand "grounded base".

An insolated solenoid requires a ground (starter button) to activate. A grounded solenoid requires a hot source (starter button) to activate.

excuse my ignorance, but what function does the push button serve? I have seen them and did not know what it was for.

You can easily bump, or crank the engine over from under the hood by merely pressing on the button on the bottom of the solenoid. CAUTION: PUT TRANS IN NEUTRAL FIRST!*! DD

Way handier is a remote starter cable. It clips to the starter button terminal on the solenoid and any ground. With it you can bump the starter from any position around the engine.

Back "in the day" they were called (slang) a dead man's switch.

Makes more sense than installing a new solenoid. That's what I use. (unless you have an arm stretcher)

drolston, I am aware of the remote starter switch, and have a couple of them, but do not carry one in the car.

I'm trying really hard to understand just how a "remote starter cable", that you have to walk over to and get out of the tool box, unwind and untangle the wires, hook-up the two wires, USE IT, then unhook the two wires, wrap it back up, walk back over and put it away in the tool box, then walk back to the car again....what the hell is so friggen' "HANDIER" about that? C'mon Man! DD

It takes seconds to hook up with alligator clips, and once it's on there you don't have to reach over to the solenoid, you can stand wherever it is comfortable that you are working and have the remote button in your hand. If it's not for you, don't buy one.

i am using an old 6v push button switch with 12 v going thru it. when i first installed it, i mounted it on the firewall with the button on top, seemed more convenient like that. worked good many times, but finally one day stuck in the engage position, and luckily i did not have the battery cable tightened up. it seems the spring inside is not very powerful, and the unit needs a little help from gravity to pull it off the contacts. flipped it over, and have not had a problem since

Amazingly, the OP (Bigjohnson) up in the very first post didn't ask for anything like a "way-handier, remote starter cable"! He asked a VERY simple question. MOST guys came back with VERY simple answers. But you guys are right about one thing. For the 'few' non-thinking morons that MAY be out there among us, or even for the innocent, inexperienced wannabe 'old-car guy' in general, he might just think how much handier this remote starter cable would be to test and listen to his starter while laying on the ground right underneath it, without having to go to all the trouble of getting up from under the car to go push that firewall-mounted solenoid button. God forbid the young guy pushes that 'handy, remote start button' BEFORE REMEMBERING TO PLACE THE TRANS IN NEUTRAL.

my view is, in the early stages of building a car from ground up, you will use that manual button a lot. after the car is a done deal and bugs are gone, maybe not so much. heck, most times the seat is one of the last things in, so isn't it easier to push a button under the hood?, and ya gotta buy one, so why not buy the one with the button?

Sorry I could not answer as to where you could find that type of solenoid.
