Customer Question

Have a Vermeer 1250 with a Perkins motor. Engine will turn over with ether, but it dies once we stop spraying it. Have changed the fuel filter and bled the system.

How is the engine killed? With switch? If so it has an electric fuel shutoff solenoid. Is this solenoid opening when switch is turned on. Has to have battery voltage to open.
