My 82 deisel uses a pull kill to stop the engine, it is mounted on the dash. My new engine which is also an Isuzu engine uses this same pull kill to stop the engine. I questioned the mechanic and was told it is the design of the engine. The ignition switch does not turn off the engine, in fact it is just a starter switch. This was the problem when I tried to install a buzzer for my headlights. These deisel models have no ignition on off switch.

I'm going to try and make some thing to stop the engine. It's not going to a kill cable. "I hope"

I once drove a Kenworth with a Caterpillar engine that used the ignition switch to turn off the engine, instead of a pull lever. You turned the ignition "off" then turned it back to the "acc" position until the engine stopped. I think it was a solenoid that was normally open, and power closed it.
Also, some diesel engines have a compression release lever that will also kill the engine, this may be what the Isuzu has, it would be a lot easier on the engine if that is how it stops it.

Isuzu has to have some thing to kill the engine beside the kill cable. I'm going to start to call around and see if I can find out some thing on it after the 4th. "I'm going camping for a week or so?" If not back to make some thing work!!

Chaplain Kent,
I just finished building a new dinette for my 345. It's a drivers side unit set behind the couch. It has cutouts for the generator box and water heater.

You're welcome to the original setup less the cushions (4" foam) and some of the mounting angle aluminum. You can also have the table itself less the hardware.

Honestly, if your woodworking skills are there it's not too hard to build one from scratch using 1 x 4 stock and 1/2" plywood. I can also send you some pics of my old dinette and the new one if you think it would help sort it all out.

Thanks for the offer but I already have it done. I eliminated the dinnette and put in another sofa/bed. Actually I used an old gaucho. See the post under remodeling is 95% complete.
We now have a trestle table which stands in the middle aisle.
