Re: Runaway diesel

It needs to be said that if your rag (or parts of it) get sucked into the air intake, it could be a PITA to fix, depending on your air intake configuration (silencer, filter, possibly turbo pump). Sometimes using leather gloves or your hat is a better way to choke off air supply.
