Help with sprinkler system

Greetings all! I'm new to this forum so I hope I'm posting my request to the right forum.

I have a problem with a sprinkler zone. The problem is with zone 6 and happens to be the last in the squence, should it make a difference.

Zone 6 continuously runs water with or without the control box plugged in. I've replaced the upper bonnet, diaphragm and solenoid and that did not resolve the problem. I measured the power to the wiring at 24VAC from the control box. I exchanged all the parts from zone 6 with zone 5 and expected to see the problem move to zone 5 however that did not happen. Zone 6 continues to run and has rendered my sprinkler system useless. Please let me know what other areas or what I should be looking for.

leaking valve

The problem sounds like the bottom half of the valve has a small crack which will keep it from sealing. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole valve.
