Carterpillar D343

..A neighbor have an old Bertram with a couple D343 on his boat.
He is refitting all system and change starter and alternator from 32V to 24V.
But he find a problem because cannot figure out how's run the stop circuit.
I quest should have any kind of actuator who decompress the engine.
Anybody know where are located that actuator?? I'm right or carterpillar use a different system to stop engine??
Or better.. anybody know how's stop a D343??
Thanks you in advance...

Almost no one uses a decompression system to stop an engine such as the Cat 343.

Look for an electric stop solenoid controlling the fuel rack on the injection pump or governor.

Re: Carterpillar D343

As DougR said, there is a solenoid inside the IP housing that actuates a lever that rotates a shaft that pulls out the rack.
