Engine won't stop when ignition turned off

This is one in a series of A Guide to Narrow Boat Problems.

Engine won't stop when ignition turned off.
Most likely cause is a failure of the stop solenoid in the injector pump, which cuts the fuel supply. 
The best (and probably only) remedy is to turn off the main fuel tap.
Make sure you know where the main fuel tap is. It's not always in an obvious place. If in doubt ask a qualified mechanic and label it clearly so it can be seen in an emergency.
