You may have messed up doing the valve body, most likely a tiny little piece of varnish broke loose and jammed up a passage or one of your new solenoids. You could try cleaning it again but without the equipment I doubt you will get it cleaned properly. Try a wrecking yard they should be able to tell you what will fit.
