Exclamation 93 IDI Non-Turbo will not start, solenoid on back of block is clicking and is hot

One of my buddies is having a bad day today, and needs some help/direction. I quoted him below. This section is not very busy, maybe I should post this somewhere else as well? Any ideas are appreciated.

Got a call about half way through the day that my daughter, who went with her grandparents to the family gathering for the day which we didnt attend because of the wifes surgery, fell down while playing went to the doctor and broke her nose. THEN we went to start up my moms truck and notta. It cranks but no cigar. There is some solenoid on the back of the block that was making some noise, clicking on and off and there is an exposed coil that was hot as all hell. Not sure what solenoid it is but there were no parts stores open to get one anyway. ANY ideas what the he!! it is? It is a 93 Ford IDI non turbo, 2WD F350.

And just as a little closure to possibly help someone else who may run across this thread in the future read below.

That combined with a bad GP was the prob. Big thanks to Bill and Bruce at Certified Power Systems in Salem for getting her back on the road in time to be to work on Tuesday, and for a very reasonable price. And as far as the gas leak under my house I ened up fixing it myself for six bucks. Thanks for all of the answers and input guys, I have been on here over a year now and still think it is pretty dam cool how hopeful to another fella everyone is.

As a rare exception, yes but routinely NO. These engines do NOT do well with ether.....bad advice unless its really important and you have no other option...

I only say this to save an engine that someone may try to use ether to start.....
