The 790 and 970 are the same circuits if the 970 is a later serial number. Earlier serial numbers were slightly different. If you have no power to the solenoid after the initial 1.5 second pull in signal, then I don't think the solenoid is the problem. The power for the hold in circuit is coming from the delay module. Since that is new, I assume that is good. The delay module has to get a signal from the seat switch, pto switch and gearshift neutral switch to operate properly. If all the switches are good and the delay module is good, then there must be a wiring issue or a bad ground. Make sure the delay module is getting a good ground and also getting full 12 volts. Low voltage can cause problems too. Is battery fully charged and alternator working?

I doubt the seat switch is the problem. If transmission and pto is in neutral, you can start tractor without sitting in the seat. The seat switch keeps it running after started and transmission or pto is put into gear. Another thought has occurred to me. DO you have mid pto? If not, then there is a wire connector in harness on left rear side of transmission that would be connected to the mid pto neutral switch. When there is no mid pto, there should be a small loop wire plugged into that connector to bypass that switch that isn't there. If that wire got knocked off somehow or the connection is corroded, that could be your problem. I am attaching a part diagram showing that loop wire connector, #30 in diagram.

Here is a wiring diagram. Not sure if it is clear enough to be helpful.
