I have an '83 K-30 with a 6.2 that would not shut off the other night. I pulled the key, wiggled it back and forth and even hit the starter once, but it just kept running. After about a minute it finally shut off, but now the thing won't crank. I can hear the starter relay kick on sometimes and the glowplugs light up every time I turn the key on. I just bought the truck and it is my first Diesel. Not really sure what is used to shut the engine off (solenoid in fuel line??) and not sure how it would be related to the engine not cranking. My first guess was the ignition switch, I pulled it out and checked the contacts, they seem fine. Any suggestions would be appreciated, my email is jzz1r9@aol.com

'Was looking for a Gardner 4LK to rebuild. None of my usual contacts could help me so I searched the Internet and found one on DieselEngineTrader. It was only 27 miles down the road!'

'We had a Mercedes engine in stock for over a year but were unable to sell it in Belgium - it was an unusual specification for generator use. Once we listed it on DieselEngineTrader.com, we sold it to a customer in England! We get regular enquiries from customers across the world.'

Rob Verhoeven, Hamofa Engines, Belgium

'Listed a Perkins T6.354 on DieselEngineTrader and sold it after 5 month. With a listing fee of $5.00 per month and no commission, it was much cheaper and more effective than the magazine we also used.'
