Re: Runaway diesel

the 2 cycle gm diesels had a flapper in the intake to shut off the air in case of a runaway. if the air box drains were plugged , oil would build up till the air would blow the oil into the cylinder through the air inlet ports in the cylinder liner. then the screaming jimmy would really scream.

Liberals are people who care about others. Freethinkers are not constrained by the myths of religion.
