First off it is not the starter solenoid, it does control the ignition, but the solenoid on all older chevys is on the starter itself. Take the part to any auto parts store, I use O'Reilly Auto Parts, they will have that fuse block/relay setup. I had to replace it on my 87 454.

Would that be an "ignition control module". If it fails, the engine will not run!

Starter relay

Looks a lot like the horn relay. Does the horn work with this relay unplugged? If not, it most likely is the horn relay. I hope this clears up your problem and does not add to it.

Good morning,make sure your rig is unplugged from any AC power. I think it may be your relay if it's the one with 5 amp fuses and diodes, which keep your engine from starting. It separates the 12V. DC system from your 120V.AC system. It may be good. Did you have ign power activating it?. Hope this helps.
