^^^ this guys got it.

depends on the v. 71 and 92 series single block Vs have the governor on the front of the engine. Dual block Vs 12v92, 24v71 etc the governor is in the middle but this doesn't apply to him. lol

no it's going to be the air cut off. That red button on the dash should be your fuel shutoff and there is most likely an electronic solenoid mounted on the governor cover that actuates the fuel shutdown lever on said governor. If the red button doesn't shut it off tilt the cab and check the solenoid for power when the button is pushed. if there is power there then the solenoid is bad.
