This is not a light weight topic. There are serious dangers involved. First. The comment about shutting off the fresh air supply. I presume this reffered to blocking the air intake. A hand put over this at reves would almost certainly result in serious injury. The suction on a reving diesel engine is considerable. Secondly, in an emergency shutting the fuel off would be way too slow. The lever on the side of the injector oump is the only safe option snd every operator should be familar with this. Diesel engines in some circumstances can run away rev. Also consider being in the engine room and an emegency happenned, something around the drive shaft, a burst water hose or any thing else that might require instant reaction. I commend to all owners to identify their emergency shut off and practice using it.
