    Apparently I didn't remember correctly. The lines to the injectors come off the back of the pump.

    That gizmo on top is NOT the shut off solenoid..
    The s/o sol. is directly behind it.. with a rubber cover over it..
    THE 1ST THING U NEED TO DO is get some brake kleen & wash that pump off..
    Then test the s/o solenoid & then loosen the fuel inlet banjo bolt on the front & SEE if the supply pump is pushing fuel TO the inj. pump..
    The big solenoid on the TOP is for cold start..{advances or retards the timing}
    I tell u to loosen the lines AT the injectors because theres a big chance of loosening up the connector the lines are attached to..
    BUT if u use the double wrench method you should be ok.. You'll be able to tell FASTER if it starts pumping, if u take the lines loose at THE PUMP..
    Either way, once it starts pumping, u have to loosen the lines AT THE INJECTORS to bleed the air anyway..

    Thanks, I'll see what I can do when I can find someone to help me. I know it looks filthy but that is dust. I am clearing some mesquite pasture and it's terrible dry and dusty here. So the part with the green rubber cap in the picture is not the fuel shutoff? I will have to look at it again tomorrow and see if I can find what you are talking about.
    Thanks again.

    The s/o sol. is between the green cap sol.. & the steel lines coming off the back of the pump..
    it has a black rubber cap on it.. just wiggle it back to get your meter or your ear back there..
    U can UNPLUG the green capped one & then listen for the "click" of the actual s/o sol..
    Can u get a WIDE shot of the whole side of the pump.?? I need to SEE if it has a manual s/o lever.. thanks

    I'll check the s/o solenoid this morning and try to get a better side pic.

    Okay, pumpguy, I found the s/o solenoid. I checked, no voltage. I jumpered the solenoid and felt it click. I jumpered it again and hit the starter and the machine kicked right off. The fuse tested good and I swapped the relay and still no voltage. Now I gotta figure out where else in the circuit there is a safety switch or break in the wire.
    Thanks for the help.
