same thing happened to me i just had to becam e part of the pull cable club
2008 white rhino lining on bottom, Mini Maxx w/pyro, all the deletes,5"flopro, Ats stage 2
1993 W250, 5 Speed Gret, 366 spring, 2nd gen intake, turned up VE, PULL CABLE CULB MEMBER, hx40, 4" turbo back to 7" single Stack, DENNY T 2 FUEL PIN,5x16DAP 322.9 Hp 548.3 Ft Lbs
if it broke once because of a turned up pump wont it do it again?
Oddly, the only way around it is to install larger injectors to relieve the increased internal IP pressures associated with turning the fuel screw up. Said pressures are what tears the shut-off solenoid's plunger.

If you're going to get a new solenoid -
try this first .......
Tear off the rubber tip completely - down to metal...
IF you are lucky enough to have a plunger that does NOT have a hole through it then make sure ALL the rubber is removed from the plunger and re-install it into the solenoid and put the solenoid back into the pump...
I know it sound crazy - but some of the solenoids had hole through them and some didn't. When mine went out at S.O.P. #6 last year they pulled the rubber completely off and since mine did not have a hole through it they re-installed to FSS....
Hasn't failed yet.
OF course this spring I got larger sticks and now it doesn't matter anyhow

I too, have recently joined the cable club. I'm a fan of the nylon string, myself. And to anyone, thanks for this thread, I finally was able to determine the cause of the failed solenoid, and that it really is a failed solenoid. however, does anyone know how to remove said solenoid? I can't get any wrenches or anything in there to unscrew it and all I can think to do is buy some cheap wrenches and grind them down. Is there a special tool or do I have to pull a bunch of stuff off first? I'm a new diesel owner and I don't want to just dig into that injector pump and accidentally remove something sensitive or in the wrong order. Thanks.
Will a torn plunger let a motor stall between shifts? If I lay into the fuel hard then let off i can consistently stall my motor. If it isn't this "plunger" then i'm possibly due for a VE pump rebuild!
