This one shown on the enclosed video is a mechanical injected engine , Not electronic. Do you have a no start? Engine cranking over but does not run? The fuel injection pump has an electric fuel shutoff solenoid. Does it get battery voltage and does it click like it is opening.?

I understand this engine has a Woodward injector pump controller which is electronic and has an on board computer (logic unit).
it requires a "run" command (or contact closure ) to start and also has a programmed in overspeed shutdown.
It is an LC-50 series unit.
I was able to locate this information on line. Thanks for your help.
