Re: Runaway diesel
I can see the decompression lever causing fuel issues. All that nasty (and diesel is a nasty fuel) has to go somewhere when you hit that level... and it's under a lot of pressure too, so it is going to go -everywhere-
But I cannot see how it can hurt the exhaust valves. You spin the engine over with the lever open to start, why would it hurt the valves to open it when running?
In the end all that matters is how fully you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things that did not belong to you -buddha
