R model will not shut down


Recommended Posts

1988 R MODEL E6. Had a stuck rack, freed it up using techniques listed here. Truck starts, but will not shut down with fuel shut-off. Rpm also increases when engine is started. Plungers dont appear to be stuck and the barrels rotate. I also pulled the govenor off and it all seems to be operating properly. When I ran the truck with the govenor cap off, the lever moves from full fuel on start, to idle position. The truck will not idle though

is the throttel lever tight to the shaft that comes out of the pump? a nut and bolt pinch that to the shaft.... same with the throttel stop? would advise you install a manual throttel stop before you keep trying to start it. Last thing you want is a runaway...and you dont want to stand next to it when it does run off.

Sounds like the pump has some issues?
