Re: Diesel Shutoff

Potential problem can be a partial shutdown and restart just as engine revs go to zero. .bounces on top dead center ,fires backwards and sucks up exhaust water, bending at least two con rods and costing about 8 grand to make right. Don't ask how I know this. A separate non slip in your hand pull knob isn't foolproof but it helps.Don't let it go until oil alarm rings.
