Engine is cranking over, but not starting? Any smoke from the exhaust when cranking? No smoke, fuel is not getting to he cylinders. Check the fuel shutoff solenoid. It is not opening the fuel passage.

I get it started but it dies out. How do I check the fuel shutoff solenoid?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 months ago.

Yanmar engine? Remove the solenoid, just left of the injection pump, plug the hole or put tape over it. and run engine to see if it runs.
