Re: Runaway diesel

I get ya Ryhs, and my number 1 is the air intake too.
Some diesels don't have the air intake where you can get to it with a rag, but the lever is right there on top.
I'm not a mechanic and don't have enough knowledge about different types of decompression methods, I just know it WILL shut the engine off as opposed to spraying parts of it and the transmission all over the boat.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
