Shut off is controlled by vacuum. Failure usually means engine will not shut off, not that it won't start. It's just vacuum lines between the ignition switch and the shut-off. Could be an air leak in the system causing a lack of fuel. Are you getting fuel from the tank? It's not unheard of that the screen in the tank gets plugged up. One way to check the system is to get some diesel purge and see if it runs when you follow the directions on how to suck it in. If it runs on purge, it's probably a problem in the tank or lines somewhere upstream from the plastic filter.
