| The answer is that, yes a few mm of movement shows that the solenoid is doing what it should. I put it back together and it all worked.|
OK, I'll also come clean and say that in putting it back together I noticed that one of the connections wasn't quite right. Yes of course I should have checked that before I started (and I did, but obviously not carefully enough). Still can't swear that that was the problem but it could have been........... 61 years old and still making schoolboy errors.
