where is that & how do we check it
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
What engine ? It will be on the injection pump on most engines. It should click open when cold, and has to stay open as long as the key is on.

Not familiar with this one, but if it has high pressure lines from the injection pump to the injectors, it will be on the injection pump!
