Yes you should get full voltage through it so Its the solenoid.
I just rebuilt a solenoid three days ago..I wish I would have photographed the process for you...I Am sorry I am still new to this seeming requirement all the good sailors here on this site seem to have to document everything all the time so I forget.
It is a simple thing to do though once open it will be fairly self explanatory as to what needs to be done..there are a couple copper carriage type bolts that make contact with a disk thease are high amperage contacts that either corrode from water or burn from current..it is a simple matter to clean theas up and put back togather,
If I were you I'd go by a new one for around 30 bucks put that on and if that fixes your problums great...then tear into the old one and learn on the fly and keep it around for a spare..It aint rocket science...
