Are you saying that it could be the culprit?
The solenoid closes and shuts off the supply of fuel when the power is turned off to it. The test is to put 12 volts to it and see if you can hear it opening and closing when the power is removed. Another thing I haven't seen you mention is the fuel pump. Have you confirmed that it is working?
