I was finally able to unclip the housing fir the wires on the back of the ignition switch. Iím still having a hard time getting the actual ignition switch out of the dash. Iíve tried unscrewing the ring face-it wonít budge. Iíve tried unscrewing from below-no go. Iíve looked around for and screws or pins but donít see anything in the way. The gauge panel is made of some kind of plastic so I donít want to pull too hard. Iím wondering if I need to remove the gauge panel of the dash but Iím not confident that would help. The ring sort of seems like itís connected to the panel.

Anyone have experience with this type of panel?

Correct Detroit diesels with supercharges were known to run away so to speak and they would just keep increasing RPM until the blew their self up. This is the reason for the air flap. Generally they had two, one was use as a general shut down and then they had a spring loaded one that was for emergency shutdown in the event of a runaway engine. The emergency shutdown would require a manual reset from under the hood or at least it did on all the Detroitís I was involved with. This is the short answer that can get way more into details that are not important at this time.

I wish I could change the name of this thread. It’s really about changing the ignition switch.

I got it! Thank you for all the help! In the end I just had to get better leverage and confidence and it unscrewed.

I’ll let you know how the install goes tomorrow.

I really appreciate this community. Thanks for participating.

A picture of the new one or the old one not installed could help someone in the future. Might help them remove theirs. Thanks.

Ignition switch installed. Problem not solved.

I started a new thread because the ignition switch has been replaced.

Could we change the name of the thread again? The issue has not been resolved.

Iíve got my multimeter here, Iím currently trying to figure out how to test the ignition switch and the wire harness it plugs into. Ignition switch- which posts should have continuity in each of the various ignition positions?
Wire harness-should each of those sockets where the wires terminate be passing 12v? Because only some of them are in my ignition wire harness unit.

What happens when you pull the relay/solenoid out while it is running??

Having voltage measurements off the switch will provide limited information if there is not a schematic.

The posts on the back of the ignition switch are pretty clearly marked: IGN, SOL, ACC, G-1, G-2, & BAT (2 posts)

Iím imagining that translates to: ignition, solenoid, accessories, ground 1&2 & 2 posts for the battery. These posts are received by sockets on the ignition terminal switch connector harness, each socket connected to one of 4 wires.. So, Iím pretty sure I can be confident that the 4 wires coming out of the back of that harness should lead to the designated systems and should have the capacity to be tested individually. I figured that each sure should be passing 12v if itís connected properly, but only 2 of the 4 wires show 12v. The other 2 bounce around 0.2v
Does that sound right?

IIRC...
Bat=constant voltage
Acc=sends voltage to accessories and components. Should be constant voltage in all positions but off.
G1=glow plug for a 5 or so second warm up
G2= glow plug for a 1-2 second start assist
Sol=sends voltage to starter relay
To shut a diesel down you have to turn off the fuel. How that is done on your particular engine I have no idea. You'll need to find out which part kills the fuel. It's either stuck open or getting stray voltage from somewhere to keep it open. Based on previous posts I'd guess stray voltage. If you can unhook the battery and kill the motor I'd lean towards stray voltage. Good luck, wiring demons suck.
