Nev, yes please, for the same reason as Ian, I often find myself out alone in the boat and would like it to be connected when teaching.

I have the switch in the dash and can make up the loom so bits would be flap and solenoid if you have one, much appriecated

Regards

Pete

stopping a Diesel engine.

Quote: I remember seeing a similar solenoid on a p22 last year which was very efficient, it stopped the engine dead in seconds, in fact, so quickly we removed it because we thought it may damage the engine !

Ian, Des,

This is the most efficient way of stopping a diesel as you have no electrics to instantly kill it..

I used to drive buses for a living & occasionally you would get a 'runaway' engine. This is where the engine gets too hot & the the diesel then ignites in the head causing a loop that causes the engine to run flat out!!!!

You may have seen a bus do this !
Into neutral, slam the brakes on, handbrake on, engine now screaming on the limiter, get out & turn the fuel off & wait for it to die. Then wait for the engine to cool down with the engine flap up (about 1/2hour). Then try again!
Makes an exciting day!

An air flap will do the job QUICKER & damage is less likely to occur.

Pete

The solenoid in question is a fuel shut off solenoid and will not harm your engine.
The engine runaway you are referring to is where engine oil vapour is blown from the crankcase into the air intake via the breather pipe. The engine will run on this vapour, bypassing the fuel system. The faster the engine runs, the more vapour it pumps, which makes the engine run faster, etc. I have never tried this, but I believe if you remove the oil filler cap it will stop the runaway. You would have to be quick though.
Nick.

Yeh, I'll tell you a similar one. The oil seal on the turbo fails. The engine starts to run on engine oil. It stops when the sump oil is too low for the pump to pick it up. It takes a long time and the area around for miles is covered in blue smoke. Seriously frightening to be near the engine during this.

Being able to stop the air sounds a good idea to me.

An you discover who your real friends are -- they are the ones that stand by with fire extinguishers instead of cameras!

Yes, they'd be real friends. I'd be running away incase the flywheel parts company with the crankshaft.
