carb fuel selonoid..how does it work?..

Having few running issues with this Honda GX620. It ran good last time I ran it but that was close to two years ago. It does start and run at lower rpms..but seems to not run very good after minute or so. Almost like cutting out. almost can't get it into higher rpms and it cuts out. I since put new plugs in and soaked carb good after dissasembling. I haven't ran it since that but will try today. I have it wired so 12volts go to the carb selonoid whenever the ignition is on..Do I got that backwards maybe? Is it suppose to be 12v at 'off' position? I do know selonoid does click when it gets voltage to it, just not sure what way it works..PS? RR? thanks again- Gene

12 v pos to the solenoid...
When you turn the key on...it energizes the solenoid and pulls in the fuel stop plunger...allowing the fuel to flow into the main jet...
When the power is removed from the solenoid...the plunger springs back and shuts off the fuel..
