Default Who makes Vans Starter Solenoid?

Does anybody have a reference for the manufacturer of Vans Starter Solenoid? (aka Starter Contactor)

The Battery Solenoid is made by Cole Hersee, part number 24115. BTW it is a continuous duty part, rated to make or break 85A. In a related question, does anybody know what the typical and max coil current is for the Battery Solenoid?

I think the Starter Solenoid may be like a Cole Hersee 24021, since it seems to have a coil that ties to the ground on the bracket and it has the "I" terminal which they call a "resistor shorting circuit". That part is rated to make 750A, and break 100A. Does anyone know what the typical and max coil currents are for this one?

The Starter Solenoid I got from Vans is marked with 12V, 5573, 8CA, and Made in USA. The two smaller terminals are marked "I" and "S" but there are no other markings.

Thanks for any info,
