On these systems you should hear the solenoid click when you push the over ride button down. They really are not that complicated to deal with.
I hear the "click" but still wont start on its own. Did enough cranking that the deep cycle battery I got for the thing is started to chug a little bit. Oil//Temp light would blink out when cranking so it IS getting pressure. Needs a spray in the air breather to even kick over. At this point I think that Murphy box is being temperamental. After discovering the wire layout I checked for power at the injector pump terminal with a test light...nada. I get continuity but thats it. In a short bit (within the next hour of this post) will be getting that assistance spoken of.
At this point I just need to know if the thing will still run, and want a more experienced hand just-in-case if I have to bypass the Murphy because of an electric fault in it.
EDIT: All is working back the way it was after first purchasing the welder and using it from time to time. Appears to be an issue somewhere between the oil pressure switch and the Murphy...annoying but far better than all seemed before...but fully intend to trace down.
Still plan on installing real gauges though as addons under the engine cover. This post was edited by RuralTowner at 18:58:17 09/25/13.
