Ford 3500 will not start!
1968 Ford 3500, 3 cylinder diesel.
Last time I started my tractor I pushed in shut off cable but when engine started it ran very rough, as if the shut-off were not pushed in far enough. When I pulled shut-off to kill engine it would not shut down. Eventually I gave the shut-off cable a harder, quick pull and the engine stopped like it is suppose to. Since then I have not been able to start the engine. I pushed the shut-off cable in fully, but still will not start. The cable is still attached and seems to be operating properly. I wonder if whatever the cable actually operates at the injector pump may be broken, bent or damaged. Fuel pump seems to be working, no air in lines, no water in fuel.
Anyone think this is a problem with that "Pull-to-stop-engine" shut-off cable?
Help would be appreciated, thanks
