I have a couple of 300 Isuzu's and they dont have anything either

Thinking it was a safety thibg if the door didn't shut properly on the bus

Been a lot of years since I worked on a couple ow CW UD's, but memory tells me they did have a micro switch on the pump linkage.

Having a few smaller Jap trucks myself, I can not say I've even seen something that stops you pressing down on the acc pedal. When you do that it just cancels the exhaust braking via a couple of switches, one on the clutch pedal, one on the acc pedal (both look similar to a stoplight switch)
this has been my experience - with similar era isuzu and Hinos at least and it’s what I was expecting

you may well be right, I should stop being a lazy bastard and just back it out of the shed, drop the bullbar and tilt the cab rather than getting you fellas to tell me! It’s just logic says a micro switch on the pedal assembly is a much better place for a micro switch than in the hot/dirty/vibrating/distant fuel pump area
