Default Fuel shutoff solenoid...$$$

So, found out yesterday with a cranking no start out of nowhere that my fuel shutoff solenoid is going. Popping the hood to lift the plunger every time I start it is going to get old quick, so I've started shopping around. Holy crap! $428 on RockAuto, $550something at NAPA. I'd have called the dealer first, but their parts dept. is closed on Saturdays. Based on those prices, Chrysler probably wants $750 for it. So I'm wondering, does anyone know any tricks to clean or rebuild this thing? I mean, I'll do what I have to do, but still. Seems a little ridiculous, no?

Garrett at pure diesel power carries a cheaper one. 99% of all diesel performance vendors buy from 2 major vendors both of which sell one that you could buy for 270 and the vendor could still make good money. 1 year warranty.

Interesting thought. I generally like things to work as they were intended, when I like how they were intended to work. That sounds like a royal PITA, but it sure would get you out of a jamb. Hm...

The electric selonoid is just a creature comfort, they have been shut off in heavy equipment forever with pull levers. I understand what you're sayin about things working as intended but I'd have to think twice before shellin out 400 for a selonoid.

I appreciate the opinion, but I have enough to remember when starting and stopping the truck as it is. More importantly, I'm lazy. I opted to shell out $110.00 at Geno's garage. Belatedly though, I find myself wondering, is there a relay somewhere that I could have checked first?

Oh! Also. I just removed my fuel plate. First drive, everything went fine... until I went to turn it off. And it kept running. Coincidence? Or is this just another symptom of a bad solenoid?
