Re: Runaway diesel

I took my sewing awl, some #150 thread, a button, a old teak cup holder and a old rubber ball ( old doggie toy ), I ran the string threw the ball ( button keeps string from pulling threw ) screwed the cup holder in the engine compartment close to air intake, ball sit in cup hold so it doesn't get lost and has enough line to reach intake.

May sound a little goofy but, it's there when/if needed.
