Re: Diesel Engine trouble-shooting

I would check the fuel pickup tube as well, as she quit while in motion....

the lights are a result of the engine stalling, not the other way around....

the engine needs air, steady clean fuel, and enough revolutions to compress the fuel to fire...

even after 40 years, I always check upon startup to see that the engine is shipping water...and often while running...
