try looking for one for the old school volkswagen diesels. They used a 4cyl VE pump with the same solenoid.

Yes.

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.

I got mine off with a crescent wrench at a very steep angle. It actually twisted loose fairly easy. I was worried I couldn't torque it tight when I put it back but no leaks so far!

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!
