Sullivan 185 won't fire up.

by Mike Hall

Good evening, I have a Sullivan 185 compressor with a John Deere diesel engine. Unit was running fine, shut it off and now it wont start.


It turns over good, checked the fuel supply, good at the filter.

It just won't fire up.

The ignition switch is loose where the key and tumblers go into the switch itself. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Mike

Got glow plugs?

Might not be sequencing them. Possibly due to ignition switch.

Was this immediately after shutdown or overnight or so?
