Thank You all help and advice is most welcome I spoke to our CFA District CFA workshop officer in charge but as these trucks are long gone most mechanics are young and not familiar with the old girls, but I don't give up easy , if it turns out to be the stop motor we would have to pay ourselves as CFA do not help retired Appliances at all, the brigade purchased her to give us an extra tanker to help the community ,so if all else fails I will take the advice from you all and fit a Morse cable , I have sent a email to Bretts trucks for advice on a cable.Much Oblged .

Just found this;

www.hino.com/assets/hino_quickreference_1984_1997.pdf

About half though the document, it lists a gazlion fusable links and their positions. (well, maybe not a gazzlion!) but might be worthwhile checking them too.

Full payment is to hear that it is fixed. Keep at it and always check earth wires, every single one you see.

jon-d, I must look to see if there is one of those manuals for the FC144 1998

Mobile 1 would like to thank everyone who sent information to help get the 1982 Hino Fire Tanker over her problem with engine stop motor not working after checking everything 20 times it had to be a very small item as it turned it was, the fuse panel on this truck does not mention a engine stop fuse, so when testing each fuse in the box with a voltage meter when put across the headlight fuse holder the relay clicked and stop motor worked, isolated the batteries , squeezed the fuse holder to tighten against the fuse FIXED ! it seemed to be tight and clean but apparently not enough, she was out in some tough terrain in the last week which would rattle ones teeth, Kind Regards to all for the help, Mobile 1.

Thanks Paul, Although not fully familiar with the Hino she had only arrived on scene when I landed with Mobile 1 , so I assume she had full air, she may have a low air buzzer I will keep that in mind ,all info greatly appreciated . John.

Good news.

"follow where the fingers have been" is a great saying when trying to fix a new problem after some else has fixed an electrical problem.
