Replaced diesel shutoff solenoid.

After I was able to cut a 15/16" box wrench in half the solenoid came out and back in relatively easily. I did have to use vise grips a couple times to slowly and slightly just enough to be able to get the box wrench fully on. I would have thought the 24mm would have been better but there was more space/play. Didn't want to round out the sides of the solenoid.

Oh good tip. I'll be replacing mine this weekend. Anything else to look out for? I ordered a replacement Bearmach unit.

Swapped back to my street tires/rims and parked in a garage that has eluded me for three years. Nice to get that inch back. Forgot how quiet these GY SilentArmors are vs. KM2s.

I unexpectedly left my truck at J Whites, my local indy LR guy. I was dropping off my MGB's wheels for new tires when the 90 started spewing diesel from the injector pump. I am awed by the coincidence; I've been driving it for the past few days, checking for leaks as always, and it just decided to fail sitting in Jeff's place..... Figure she wanted to spend a few days w/ a bunch of other Rovers.

Not that I can remember.

I do have a loss of power and/or hesitation now. Air line fuel line? Something unrelated? Not sure yet. Hopefully I can fix or figure it out tonight.

I took a ride in a AAA flat bed last night.

As soon as I put the top up and windows on I tried to see what the problem was. Truck started right up.

So I was able to put it back in the garage. Murphy's Law

Mine has been on the back of a flat bed many times. The Premier Membership is a must.

Coincidentally, my son was imitating real life last night.

Gotcha OK thanks. I tested my solenoid last night, disconnected the wire off of it and the truck kept running. Assuming it is a mechanical issue with it of some sort. I'll yank it out when the new part arrives this week.

Maybe this is related to your solenoid? If the solenoid doesn't open then no start. Maybe your issue is electrical related not mechanical within the solenoid itself?

That is possible. I am hoping. I am going to swap the old one back in to see if that helps.

I wish this stuff started in the fall when I wasn't planning on driving it as much though.

When you installed the new solenoid, did you check to see if it was a mechanical issue with solenoid by disconnecting the electric connection while running? Maybe you got another bum solenoid?

doh. Didn't think to do that because the truck turned off fine at that point. Still does. Except for last night of course.

What gave you the indication to replace the solenoid to start with?

I am going through this right now, my new truck was turning off fine for the first half a day I had it, now it won't turn off without stalling it. I disconnected the electric from the solenoid and it stays running. I hit the solenoid with a hammer, to try and get the spring to drop, it stays running.

Same symptoms as you described actually. Turns out the one in there didn't have a spring. Odd that it worked a little bit without it for a little bit though.

I believe I've read that the spring in the solenoid can get gummed up and stick. Perhaps the system is gunky.

The spring is inside the solenoid right? How did the spring disappear? Maybe it was just gummed up.

That's what I have read as well, and hoping the solution to my issue. My truck starts up and idles really nice. My truck has been used very little over the past few years.

Drove it

Drove from seller's to hotel in Birmingham.

Seller has replaced transfer box, mid and rear silencers and piping, expansion tank, cam belt (300TDi) and said the rear crossmember passed MOT but only had a few years left...he tossed a replacement crossmember 1/4 frame in the truck for me!

Drove into garage with hand up to ensure I did not rip roof off.

Probably fell out before putting the plunger in.

Then tried to install my new antiburst latches and door cards but forgot my '83-'84 latches had different f*%&ing strikers too.
