Re: Runaway diesel

We had an old carrydeck crane with a diesel engine that became notorious for not shutting down or overrunning. We installed a ball valve just down stream of the the air filter so we could stop the engine. If your filter housing is threaded to the air intake tube, it would be an easy install, assuming you have room for the valve.
