Make a stop board with a piece of rubber or cork gasket stapled to it... Keep it handy!

So isn't it likely that this was really just a cable connection or electrical connection issue of some sort for the stop solenoid? I hope one of the more experienced diesel folks out there would discuss if it is possible to disconnect the stop solenoid? Do I have this backwards or am I confused? What about installing an emergency stop lever that would close off the air intake for such a situation? But these things are extremely rare in my experience. What say ye???
THAT WAS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He said he didn't have any tools to get the air cleaner off, and I assume from the description he gave of trying to use a rag to block the air there isn't a spout on the air cleaner to easily block off. So it sounds like he was trying to stuff a rag in a circular non flat opening.

Re: How do you stop a Diesel Motor

I dont understand why opening the decompression levers did not work. Mine sure wont run with them all open.
