I have an International DT 466 1996 with a strange problem...
everyday in the early afternoon the truck just shout down on us and turned off every time the rpm drops a bit, never happened in the morning, we do manly short drives park and load for a few hours then drive 10-15 miles and park again (engine if off)
we have replaced 2 fuel pumps gas lines, checked and cleaned the tank ran air in the system,,, and so... the problem still occurs...
If you leave the ignition switch on after it dies and look under the hood, what position is the fuel shutdown solenoid in? If it is in the off position, it could be either the relay or the solenoid itself.
Other than that, I don't have any specific ideas but it does sound like a fuel system problem to me.

Could be a cmp, BUT the 1st place I would check is the prefilter fuel filter screen behind the fuel filter, it is by far the most negected item on any dt466. Remove spin on fuel filter, DIRECTLY behind the filter housing in line is a small plastic canister that houses a fine screen serviceable prefilter trap. It unscrews ccw then pull straight down. Pull screen and inspect and clean as needed. A word of caution,
THE PREFILTER AND THE FUEL FILTER MUST BE FILLED COMPLETELY WITH FUEL BEFORE YOU REINSTALL OR THE ENGINE WILL START THEN STALL AND IT WILL NOT RESTART UNTIL BOTH FILTERS ARE REPRIMED WITH FUEL.
(I'm not yelling just emphasizing the importance of priming the ff's)

I've had some of those check valve/regulators in the back of the head get debris stuck in them. Its right behind the end of the High pressure oil manifold. Its attatched by a banjo fitting. You can take it off and take a look at it.
