hi im new here, and yesterday we almost lost our chevy dumptruck with the 3116 it had a full load of rock in the bed and our excavator on the trailer behind it, our driver dropped down a hill and the breaks went out, he was running about 90 95 at one point down the hill, right before he got it stopped the engine cut off, and now we cant get it to start, any ideas whats wrong or is it just done now? if i had more details id give them but i wasnt there when it happened, but any feed back would be nice, thanks Scott LSC

Is it a mechanical engine or electronic? I had a guy over ether a Cat 950F (mechanical engine) and it took out the governor. The truck engines that over revved always dropped valves. Does it sound normal cranking over?? Check to see if it is getting fuel....first.
