Re: TMD22 Emergency Shutoff

Bill, there is a lever next to the point where the throttle cable connects to the engine. Lift/ twist the lever and it cuts off the fuel supply just like the shut off solenoid would if there was power.
I painted mine bright pink(only highvis color available in Marin) so other crew could find it fast.
Yes, stopping the air input does work, but…it can be seriously hazardous to the palm of your hand if you do it by hand as the depression is quite strong. On the other hand (pun intended), if you use rags, they will be sucked into the engine. So some caution is necessary with this method.

Wery easy to do you stop the fresh air input .....:-)

What is the best way to shut off a TMD22 when there is no power available to use the normal shut off method?
