Oh, hang on, original post in 2012. Fuel probably ran out by now.

Look at post #10. Thread is restarted with a new question. Probably deserved its own thread though.

Sigh, not the first time I have made the same mistake. Probably won't be the last.

You have to press the stop switch BEFORE you turn off the key.

If you have done that and it still will not stop--you have a loose wire or a faulty start switch

I always thought that stopping a diesel was the number one reason to have a small dog or cat on board ...

Jeez, it would've done a helluva lot of hours by now if the OP never got to read the replies in this thread.

Anyhoo, I can vouch from personal experience that sticking your hand over the air intake of a screaming 30hp diesel engine will, in fact, stop it without destroying your hand in the process
