Re: Solenoid for Engine Emergency Stop

Can you send me a picture of it?
why does it not work electrical or machanical?

On my Gardner engine I put an air operated shut off on the commpressor to shut down the engine.

Re: Re: Solenoid for Engine Emergency Stop

Mark, it is an electrical solenoid that pulls a lever to stop the fuel, it is not pulling the lever, now I have also noticed that the alternator is not sending the needed power and that I need to fix it, could it be possible that since the alternator is not sending the right amount of power, then the solenoid does not work at its peak? I think this is not the case but I would like to be 100% sure.

If it's a 24 volt unit and it's only getting let's say 12 volts it will not work right.
So I think your right if your altenator is not putting the 24 volts into the system then it's all related.

Here is a photo, from the Fleetline Workshop Manual:

That manual also says "the unit requires no maintenance" but the manual for the FE30 (Leyland version of the Daimler) gives info on dismantling and repair.

Note that (on my bus, as shown in the drawing) the stop solenoid is electric but the engine speed control is hydraulic.
