OK all you wonderful diesel guys. I need your help. Was using my 89 430 mowing. mowed 2 hours, drove it 6 blocks to fill with fuel. Started it up left for home. Saw a friend working on a 46 truck, stopped to chat. went to start the tractor nothing. It was kicking in the fuel solenoid but would not engage starter. pulled home 6 blocks and left it in the barn for 4 hours. went in and tried it and it started. Seems it won't start when warm. what the hey. any thoughts. thanks Doug

Doug, the safety switch system on the 332 (and I assume the 430 as well) interrupts power to the starter solenoid when one or more of the the switches is activated. When in a no-start, pull off the hot lead to the solenoid, if you have 12V when you turn the key,the problem is not the safety switch system, but a dead solenoid. I had a long-time problem with no-start when hot on my 332 and the starter solenoid was the problem. BTW, if it is the solenoid, you can get a much less expensive aftermarket solenoid.
