Re: my 91 eagle talon overheated then ceased
It may have gotten hot enough to fuse the pistons to the cylinder walls. Loosen up all of the belts going to the harmonic balancer and hook a socket to it. Try to turn it in a clockwise fashion. If it doesn't turn, your engine is seized and will be a total loss. If it turns, some other problem exists.

Choke is an adjustment to air intake to adjust fuel/air mixture and is heat related. Do not fully open choke as soon as it starts. Gradually open as the trimmer warms up. If a happy medium can not be found then fuel adjustments will be needed on carburetor.
Most diesels have a fuel cut off solenoid. While the ignition key is in the run position, this solenoid is usually in an activated state by a relay that is triggered by the ignition key in the run/start position. Although probably much more complicated, even newer diesels have this solenoid. and if this solenoid gets stuck in the open position, the diesel engine won't be able to shut off. Since diesels run solely on fuel pressure (~1000+ psi), cylinder compression (~4-6x higher than a gasoline engine), and fueling duration. The fuel cut off solenoid or more likely it's relay (relays have a tendency to get sticky or have carbon buildup on the contacts, either keeping them from physically turning off or from making electrical contact).
DO NOT DO THIS! If I understand you correctly you want to have three ways to have 110 power in your motor home--- (1)Vehicle 12V to inverter to main panel. (2)Generator to main panel. (3)plug the main panel into 110V. If any two of these are connected at the same time and they are both live, somethings going to blow. That's because with AC, the two sources must be synchronized in their cycles very precisely. The utility company connects their power plants together on the grid only with the aid of precise controls. But the really serious problem is the same reason they invented transfers switches for home generators -- if you were connected to (3) and the power went out, and you connected (1) or (2) without disconnecting the dead (3), you will backfeed power to the line outside and you just might kill the lineman who is trying to fix the power outage.
The part you are after is called a starter pawl, i know because the same thing happened to mine. Unfortunately you can't buy just the pawl, they only sell a flywheel kit which is about $35 which contains the flywheel and two pawls.
Hi there... Electric chainsaws only use bar and chain oil. If you go to a hardware store or garden power tool outlet, you will find bottles of bar/chain oil. That is all you need. Just fill the reservoir up and top up as needed. Any decent brand will work well.
