get a new auto elec.

What type of safety lockout are you running?
generic distributor sense?

I'd first start off by:
Run a new pair to the lockoff valve and replace the actual valve coil.

Would not have a clue on what ones im running.
Are there any dangers with changing solenoids?
As long as i turn the gass off at the tank
