Lister Based Generators / Re: Lister TS2 slow to shut off.

I forgot about that, I recently did an oil change and checked the level and it was good. When I get back to the generator I will take another look at the level.
Thank you

The stop lever seems to go all the way to the off position and the fuel is clean. I don't know about a failing seal in the fuel solenoid, this is an external electrical device that moves the stop lever to run and back to stop.

Lister Based Generators / Lister TS2 slow to shut off.

I have a 1980's Lister TS2 mated to a Dyna generator head that was removed from an old light tower. It has needed some tlc to keep it going but recently it started this new problem.

After it has been running for a while, when I de-energize the run solenoid, the engine shuts down but it sounds like it wants to restart by stuttering a few times.

It does stop but this is a new problem for me. I know that the fuel pumps should be disabled when in the stop position but I don't know why or how some fuel is still intermittently getting to the cylinders. Can anyone shed some light  on this problem?

Thank you
