Fuel issue

Ah yes, the no go engine. Charge the batteries for 4-5 hours. A full battery indicates 12.6 volts. Low battery equals starter destruction. Go to walmart or some other place and get an outboard motor primer bulb. Install primer in line between fuel tank and lift pump or injection pump. Squeeze the bulb many times to determine if fuel is available. No fuel, add 5 gallons of fuel. Fuel is visible, open a couple injector lines. Look for fuel. No fuel yet, check fuel filter and fill to top of filter. Fuel is at injector, begin the start trials. Your condition sometimes indicates a pin hole in the supply fuel line. Frank

Fuel cut off issue

After the batteries are charged, make a jumper long enough to clip on the large terminal on the alternator.... Then touch the jumper end to the solenoid and listen for the click. See if ya can make lots of clicking noises. Frank

Re: Ford B700 Fuel cut off issue

The sol. is mounted on the side of the injector pump, and is about the size of a D cell flashlight, with 3 wires coming off of it. Take note with it it the 'off' position, then go bump the starter a little with the key but leave it in 'run'. It should be in the down position, or pulling on the little lever. When you shut off the key, it should snap back to the off position, which is up. You can also zip tie it in the run position for testing purposes, just dont drive it that way.
I'd be more thinking it's got air still stuck in it. Make sure the primer pump gets hard to push, then try starting with your foot to the floor until it starts.
