A switch can be installed in the pump and a new cover added. An injector pump place can do this. My dozer has a Rossa Master pump on it which is the same as the Ford pump and it will quit running when you turn the key off. I think that it would cost about $150 to convert the Ford where it quits when the key is turned off. I am not advocating this just offering some infromation if some one wants to go that way. The only advantage would be you would not forget to turn the key off and let the battery run down.

All the key switch does is turn on or off the ability to run the starter motor and glow plugs. This allows you to take the key out and maybe keep the little kids from messing with your tractor. But your diesel tractor will start with the key switch off if you turn the engine over some other way, like pull starting it, if the "throttle" lever is in the right position. It is also extremely easy to "hot wire" the diesel electric start system with a screwdriver or pair of pliers.

The way to turn off the diesel engine is to push the "throttle" lever as far up as it will go. You will want to turn off the key switch though, because if you don't your battery will go dead. Been there, done that!

Yes it is a 12 volt diesel and shutting off the throttle has been how I have been stopping it...just didn't know if something was wrong electrically.

Thanks guys

Bill

Do you have a gas or diesel? 841 D usually means diesel. or it could be a transmission transplant to a gas tractor.

Gary is correct on the shutoff part and if the the red charge light works,turn off the key as not to run the battery down If it doesn't work is won't make any difference

Sounds like its 123 volt convertion and if so some times you need a diode in line so it will not feed back from the alternator and keep running

Diesels do not shut off with the switch-move the throttle FULLY up to shut off.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
