Looks like Westerbeke 8BTD series. Solenoid pulls to run, releases to stop.

Yes, It is different to what you were thinking but it is a good system as the fuel is OFF when there is no power to the solenoid.

Its definitely a BTD or BTDA model. There are several KW versions. The fuel solenoids work the same. Energize to RUN. Opposite of your Ford. When you hold the PREHEAT/START switch to PREHEAT, the solenoid pulls in TO THE LEFT. If its not moving you found at least one problem.
Which fuel filter did you change? There are TWO!
Also if it once pulled in and now will not, try pushing the STOP switch first, release, then go to PREHEAT for a few seconds. Don't preheat too long. 30 sec is the max.

Yes that switch was bad too. I would push it and nothing happens. Checked continuity and none so made another and then there was only one good glow plug. Took one from the last generator and bought one off amazon.

The guy I bought it from was and old diesel mechanic and said he rebuilt it. Looks like the head has been done. I let it sit a year in my garage and should of tried to start it then but assumed it ran and pulled the old one out and dropped this one in. I hope I didnít just make weight.

Thereís another switch on the panel that when in the down position the pump comes on but the light is off and in the middle nothing happens so off and in the up position the pump and the light comes on. Then you push the start button for it to crank over??

At this point I have to assume no manual.
Can you post a picture of your control panel?
No idea what light you are referring to.
