Hi I'm Wayne, I will try to help you with this,
did you ever remove the Ign Switch, and check the terminals, for burned connections, We had a IH. do this very same thing, as a matter of Fact a customers truck went thru 2 ign switches in about a 3 year period. we would jump the relay on fire wall, and be fine for several hours, showed him how to do this, till truck came to shop and Fixed
Hey there! Been waiting all weekend for a response. I checked the switch there are no signs of burnt wires or terminals.I would not rule it out,But it seems to me why is the start position on the key switch dead when the truck shuts off.Then you jump relay to start then turn it off,Then turn key and the truck starts
I was out of town for the week end, Took notice today, at questions, seen yours and boy did that bring back memories of a night mare ,and 1 Angry Boss, (customer) chewing me out on the phone
I would with any doubt, replace that Ign. switch, Harvester had problems with switchs internally...and burning up on out side
Sorry the switch was not it. I replaced it then started truck waited to warm up.As I was thinking about taking it for a ride it stumbled once then again about 10 seconds later. I still have it running to see if it will totally shut off today
So that was not it, I would have bet money on it........OK, so now it is not dying out, just stumbling, and you are letting it run to see if it going to die ,correct
if it does not die , and just stumbles , I would think that it was the Switch, and now this is a another problem, may have been caused by loosing power
Let me know what's going on
Yes,I also noticed the Ign relay is Hot.Is there that much draw on that circiut. It is hard to know if the truck will not set codes.What is next !
Relay should be warm to the touch, not Hot thhat you can not hold it
also feel and see if your fuel solenoid is Hot
well I can hold my finger on it.Ok i will walk out and feel it. Give me a minute !
If you are reffering to the IPR, I cant leave my finger on it
OK, back went out for a smoke
No not the IPR , the fuel shut off solenoid on side of pump
Is the truck still running ??
If so take for a test ride
Truck still running, I did not see fuel solinoid,like a mechanical motor.But i will take it around the block. Wish me luck Talk to you maybe 30-45 minutes
OK Sir, good driving
I have to run and pick up Grand kids from school, be back at 4pm, leave me a message when you get back
Yes I understand.I also got cornered in the yard talking about another job.Any way I drove the truck up and around interstate 95 for about 35 miles with no problems. Held it to the floor.Then turned around came down Rt 40 at 50mph.Did not hesitate,stumble,or shut off. Maybe that was it.Ether way I won't feel that it's fixed untill the guys run it for couple days.
good I am glad to here that, I was sure that was your problem, Like I said I have gone thru that night mare ...... Well if you hit Accept, and feel that your problem is not solved ,I will ask for a refund of your money, but I'm sure you and I can work out this problem, which I think, we already have ......... either way, up to you.
and God Bless
