Re: CAT Engine 3516C crank by el.starting motor but not started

If you haven't got this engine running yet here is some ideas.
Is there any fuel or air shutoff valves that are still closed? Possibly a Right Saver Air Shutoff is still Closed.
Most 3500 series CAT engines need 25psi fuel pressure at the heads to start.
Do you have ET to check Engine Speed Sensors. Cam sensor could be failing.
Is there any other ET codes present?
ET will also indicate if the E-stop switch is properly switched or possibly another shutdown switch is active or faulty.
Sometimes after an E-stop the ECM needs that code cleared before next startup.
Was the E-stop activated at higher engine loads? Turbo shafts can be damaged due to lack of oil and coolant flow when they are still spinning at high speeds. Possible Turbo failure.
What's your Cranking Speed. Maybe starters are weak.
