    Diode on Alternator, Yes.

    Solenoid on Starter, ??? Not buying that one, the starter is dead until called for, if solenoid not working as it should, then the starter wouldn't work as it should and that would be obvious.

    Once OP is sure that's the actual problem of course. ;)

    Well I jumped it and it started fine.

    Voltage is about 14.6 when the engine is running

    Well the Alternator seem to be fine, so as long as there isn't something like a boot/glovebox light staying on it would point to the battery being duff.
