First check the fuel return line and fitting at the injection pump cover assuming it is a CAV/Lucas injection pump. If return fitting is plugged, engine will start and quickly die. If return is ok, look for the electric fuel solenoid at the injection pump, it has to open the fuel rack, and has to hold it open, or engine dies. It has to have battery voltage at all times key is on. If it is loosing voltage, you can run jumper wire from battery source direct to it, to get engine to run.

I don't see the solenoid you are rolling about by the injector rack.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

It should click each time switch is turned on and off. Flip switch on and off and see if you can find it. It may be internal to the injection pump, with a wire going to it, or it can be external on the linkage.

See page 51 for trouble shooting. This is electronic engine so disregard my previous statement bout the fuel solenoid, It does not have one. If you open the bleed screw after the primer pump do you have fule flowing when yo use primer pump? If you do, problem is electrical.

I am not happy with the answer. It doesn't work. The engine is shutting down seconds after every start due over frequency but the rpm and voltage are within the range. How can I lower the frequency yo 50hz rates since this engine has no mechanical adjustment? And I also ordered an electrical diagram for this perkins 2300 series.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

frequency is product of rpm. If over hertz limit, engine is running to fast. With electronc engine , has to checked and adjusted with computer with the right soft ware!

Customer reply replied 5 years ago
i haven't find the solution yet. I have no computer to connect to it to adjust the frequency. Is there some else I can try?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

Looks to be inly chaned by using the Perkins electronic tools! Need t locate Perkins dealer who would have the computer and software required. The beauty of electronics!
