Default 1986 pt 40 wont start

Its an 8 v 92 just drove 1900 miles now it will turn over but will not start i think it may be the emergency shut down pull lever under steering wheel got pulled by accedent , it is pushed in., but dose some thing have to be reset so the engine will start and run.. or any other ideas Thanks in advanced you have aways helped me in the past. It is in Abelein SD now.

David, The emergency shut down, once pulled does have to be reset manually. Best way to find and discover is to have someone pull handle, while you are at the rear of the coach. Once it pulled the spring actuated lever is released and can be reset only by hand. Look at the air intake, Eng side.

David, I just went outside, little light left. On my 6v very easy to see and get at. On the 93 was not able to see, will try and locate a flash light and look, fact is I can't say I remember the pull handle under the steering wheel. I will look. What you are looking for would be a spring loaded lever that when released will close off the air intake. Frequently call a runaway Eng. Emergency shut down.

David, my 6v is a mechanical Eng, thus up under the steering wheel there is a pull up chrome handle. ( emer Eng shut off). Cable runs to the rear and when pulled trips lever top rear of Eng, just below turbo.
The 93 is a computer controlled and is not the same as it has a elect switch for emergency shut down. I am guessing that it activates a solenoid that's cuts fuel flow?
