Check the resistance at both the clock and solenoid and compare that to the others. Unless they are a fair distance from one another,(a couple hundred feet)the readings should be similar if they are all the same type solenoid. If you get a considerable difference reading at the problem valve and it's several ohms higher, you probably have a hi resistance connection somewhere in the circuit.
And since you apparentlly have other colored wires in the clock, try using TWO other colors for hot and common and see what you get.

to low of voltage to valve

There is only 12.6v reading at the valve so the station spriinklers spit then nothing. This circuit was previouly working. There aren't any shorts showing on the timer and the reading at the timer is around 29.0v. Also changed to different colored wires from controller to valve and same reading. The valve has been replaced and it functions properly. There are 6 other stations and they all work fine
