Customer: replied 3 years ago.

will start every time ,but not keep running, I know its not good to do - but if you keep starter on the engine would go to full throttle if you were to kept the key on. if and when it douse run , will run fine , if you stop it and start it right away its fine , but leave it a couple of minutes you are back to square one

Hi

Put a test light on the cut off switch ,switch on the ignition then the light should light up, then try and start, light should stay ON , when the engine starts let the key go, is the test light still on or did it go out ..

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

their is nothing there on ignition ,only when you turn on the starter. there is also a large solenoid about a foot away from the battery ,it is only "live " when starter is on. I have put a live to both fuel cut off , and the other solenoid and just the same

Expert:  Greg replied 3 years ago.
Okay as i understand, you put battery voltage direct to the cut off switch and started the engine and it still stalls when letting go of the switch .
Take a photo of the solenoid on the side of the wing ,think your on about the glowplug solenoids , post the photo so i can see where you are connecting up and checking for power .
