I'm pretty sure he says the controller is a Nelson but he doesn't know what make the valve is.

Older Nelson valves of that series had a separate piece that combined with a 'standard' 3/4-20 thread solenoid to make what is sold as a single piece today - why the change, I don't know.

Signature acquired Nelson back in 2008. The most common solenoid replacement listed, the 7962, is for the 7900 and 9000 series. It's also the only one I can find listed, which narrows the options. Without knowing for sure which valve you have it is a best guess/gamble.
