Yes --fully retracted so that the valve or governor arm can go to the full fuel position
when turned off , the spring in the solenoid pushes the lever forward to shut off the fuel

SOURCE: fuel cut off switch for 1990/91 ford escort 1.9

The "inertia switch" which shuts off fuel to the engine in the event of a collision or jolt on a 1991 through 1996 models, as well as on 1998 coupes, is located in the rear of the vehicle, near the right (passenger's side) strut tower. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-sided trim panel. On sedan and coupe models, open the trunk and remove the right-side trim panel. On hatchback and wagon models, there may be an access door secured by clips. On some models you may need to remove the lower quarter trim panel on the right side, however it is easier to cut an access hole directly above the switch.

SOURCE: I have an 1983 HJ60 Diesel Landcruiser with 4.2

have you fixed this problem? if not ,here we go ,hj6ocruiser had 4lt a,2h engine if you have a 4.2 ltr engine in yours it will be ,a 1hz motor and a bugger of a job to fit(i have only done one and even though i have been asked i wont do another) the point being ,with out modification the 2 glow systems are not compat able the early 2h had 11 volt glow plugs then they went to 6 volt with a largeglowplug in the manifold (manifold heater) the 2h did chnge to the superglow system but not untill 1995 (in australia anyway) if you did not change the timer you will find you burn out glow plug s pretti regularly. if you brought it to me ,iwould remove,check and re place (where necessary)all the glow plugs and the manifold heater .then run an independant 12 volt wire, after disconecting the existing feed to the manifold probe, the new wire runs through an
independant switch fitted on the dash board to the manifoldheater.there
is no doubt in my mind that this is the soplution to your problem----- the quick fix is asquirt of aerostart into the air cleaner as you co to turn her over or else loosen the wingnut on top of the air cleaner a teaspoon or so of petrol at wingnut and fire her up, aerostartis best ,if you can let me know how you get on i`d appreciate it youdoit

Ford escort 1.8 diesel ran dry. Put in diesel tow it to start drive 120 km. Switch of next morning just turn over not starting. When tow it starts and drive well. Standing overnight no start


sounds like you might have air getting into the fuel system. Or a fuel check valve leaking, letting the pressure escape. Make sure filters are full.

Ran out of diesel and filled it again cant get it started


Hi,

You have to bleed the diesel from the injectors, however diesel forced out of an injector can go through the skin and could prove to be fatal so great care should be taken.

Diesel pump


if memmory serves me correct

the three wires from old pump
power
ground
and glo rod power

more than likely i would say upgrade your diesel pump to the eight wire configuration you really want to use what is mandated for the vehicle or you can or will have trouble in the future
