    Was adjusting max fuel on 1HD-T and turned it down a bit. Idle lowered as a result and was about to adjust idle screw when motor stalled. Didn't seem like it stalled from lack of fuel though.

    Now it turns over but no start (lots of grey smoke when trying to start).

    I'm now noticing that the turbo lights and the A/T oil temp and glow plug lights do not illuminate in the dash when the ignition is turned on.

    Tips?

    I'd move this into diesel tech. Hopefully this isn't your injection pump. My rebuild cost me $2,500 US yesterday with the injectors...

    Engine, IP and injectors are freshly rebuilt. I think something shorted since those A/T/Turbo/glow lights don't come on prior to starting it now.
