I have a full "watch dog" shut down system on my 53 hp diesel.
It has a bypass switch you use to start the engine. This ensures that the bypass is tested every time you use the engine.
The watch dog will pull the injector solonoid to off if the engine tempreture is too high or the oil pressure drops.
An engine stopping is a very good indicator !! It takes a split second to flick the bypass and restart in an absolute emergency.
In practice this situation is not going to happen very often.
Safe drifting or anchoring until you sort the problem, get help, or go to plan B !!
