Customer Question

Bit complicated, but bear with me. My brother in law has a 1978 VW camper fitted with a 2.7 perkins diesel engine. He can't turn the engine off, something about a valve connected to a motor. The motor is burnt out. Can we/he get a part or is it a rewind of the motor. He is having no look in Germany where he lives
