Lister LPWS starts once but not again!


A new problem that I can't get my head around.  When cold it starts immediately and then stops in just a second or two.  After that the engine is completely uninterested.

However I have discovered that if I use full throttle for several minutes and very slowly reduce the revs she will happily settle to a tickover. Once hot she will run and restart happily all day.

Any ideas would be appreciated. 

Diesel Engineering:
Sounds as if the rack, or one or more of the fuel pumps is sticking. You could remove the end cover and see if anything feels tight.

Bit uncanny! I had become convinced myself that it was the rack and a sticking pump but with little idea of how this creates the problem.

Have you had experience of this yourself?
