Do you know what engine? Duetz diesel? Air cooled diesel engine? Is oil level correct on engine? Do any of the gages show low pressure or high temperature? Usually th e probelm is oil or oil temperature sending unit, killing the safety system because of low oil or high temperature. Fro what I remember about the 3700 was it just has sensors on the engine, not on the trencher end. Also the fuel shutoff solenoid can be over heating and shutting off the fuel.
