Default 8V92 Emergeny Engine Cutoff ?

According to the manual there is a emergency engine cutoff lever at the dash.

I cant find it, does anyone know where it is?

Thanks, Joe

Hi Joe,

On my 84 1/2 PT-36 (6V92) the emergency engine cutoff is actually mounted on the steering wheel column down by my left knee. It's a pretty good sized chrome T- handle. I don't know if it's the same on an 87.

Dont see one like that on mine...

I'll keep looking though. It took me a while to figure out the lever for the trans retarder... :}

Thanks, Joe

if the 87 has a D-Deck,it may not have the pull cable type shutoff.
the later D-Decks have a switch for emergency shut down.

Is the D-Deck an electronic engine? If so I dont think I have one...

Still looking for the shutoff :}

Thanks, Joe

Default 8V92 D-Deck

Randy,

It's been a while since this thread was last responded to, but I just bought my Blue Bird last month. It's an 88 without the electronic control.
It's a narrow body, and PT40's were made in 96" and 102" versions during that changeover year. I haven't seen any other 88 narrow bodies, but I would guess that they were all mechanical control. By the way, my non Electronic engine doesn't have an emergency fuel shut-off even though the Manual says it does.

i have seen one 88 wide body with the old style narrow axles,the tires sit in about 3'' more on each side.
some interesting things went on in the "change" years.

The engine emergency stop on my non-DDEC '87 8V92 (PT40) is located to the left of the steering column, as shown in these photos:

Here it is, buried behind the steering column adjuster, next to the retarder control...



Another shot showing the T-handle, to the right of the retarder control...
