It is a fuel cutoff solinoid, backfire prevention solinoid. If it fails then you will get no gas into carburetor. If you turn the key from off to run and it clicks then it is working, if it does not click then there is a problem.

no that solenoid is a anti dieseling valve, when you shut off the key, it closes the main jet to shut off fuel immediatly to the engine. sounds like you have an ign problem. im guessing its a twin, you need to get a spark tester... check each cylinder for a strong rythemic purple spark. if not present, replace the coil, of looks good try a set of new plugs. only other thing is a hole in a piston but in that case it wouldnt build enough compression to light out of the carburator. good luck!

Sounds too lean.
Can you cover the air intake with your hand 90% or use the choke a bit and then load the engine to see if it runs better?
If you ever find a carb with manual high and low mixture adjustments that will fit yours......put it on and keep it on.
You can usually get then from older tractors.
