What does it have for a fuel shutoff solenoid? The solenoid is sticking, or the link that should move with the solenoid inside the pump is sticking. With the pump already replaced, more likely the solenoid is not being energized for start.

I honestly do not know what it has or where or what to even look for
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

What is the engine make and model? Usually on the left end of the injection pump body.

I dont have that information. The machine is not here and it will be next weekend before I can get to it. Just was hoping there was a quick simple fix. If not I guess I will have to get it towed to a shop somewhereThe person I bought it from told me it is a yanmar engine if that helps
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Then that is where the fuel solenod is, on the left end of the injection pump. It will have three wires in the harness. One should have power when the key is on, the other should have power only when starter is engaged, and the third is common.

Makes sense... I have been having alot of issues with electric connections on the machine.Is this a part that can be easily changed?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, two 10mm headed screws hold it in place.

Would look similar to this.
