Re: Runaway diesel
Have used the CO2 fire extinguisher method to kill a runaway. It works, but make sure its CO2 not dry-chem. Just as an aside, here is a vid of a 1930's Rapp Semi-Diesel (2 stroke) running away from an overfilled crankcase.
"I reckon I got to light out for the Territory ahead of the rest, because Aunt Sally she's going to adopt me and sivilize me, and I can't stand it. I been there before." (H. Finn 1884)
