Not sure if this has been previously posted, but I didn't see it. Wish it went to the very end...

I have thought about using a fuel shutoff (edit: meant to type air shutoff) on the OM617 conversions, but never seriously looked into it.
Thanks for the link.
Lots of good info and options available.

It is running on engine oil. A fuel shutoff will not help anything.

Just stall it. The engines are not that powerful.... High gear, drop the clutch.

Mis-typed... thanks I meant air shutoff.
I was working on our lawn mower and had to add a fuel shut-off and have had that term stuck in my head since Saturday.

Yes or drive it like that runaway bus movie only slower going up hills.

Looks like my 300TDI running on a UCO and WVO mix before pulling in front of 2 motorcycles and a convertible.
It was a bitch when you had to backup, well otherwise, the smoke was all behind you.

I had this happen on a VW diesel years ago, the oil was way overfilled and I went around a corner very quick. The tach needle was pointing straight down, the cloud of smoke was incredible. I popped the clutch in 5th and it quit.

Another poor man's solution is to dump a fire extinguisher into the air intake...it clogs the air filter and causes the motor to cut out. At least maybe for those with automatics.

I could try that on my LWB, I retained the stock air trumpet.

But the 7.3 Ford intake is not accessible.

And Doug is spot on about the brakes...

Bringing this back up after seeing the pics of that red 110 burnt and having the rack on my IP not come out of the start position I've been curious about an air intake shut off valve.

I haven't been able to find much in terms of price. The ones I have found for Cummins are $800!

I wonder if this cable operated jobber would be less:

Is anyone running an air shut off valve?

There has to be a cheap-o alternative somewhere!

Could serve as a very easy casual anti-theft deterrent as well.

In truth, even a cheap throttle body from any vehicle could be retrofitted and would be cable ready. The horsepower of the LR diesels is lower than or on par with most of the civics and corollas out there.

Get a engine bay fire extinguishing system out of an old race car. Plumb the extinguishing nozzle into the intake/right at the air filter (or whatever). Then have the emergency switch in the cab. In case of runaway, pull knob. Fill intake with C02.

But really, runaways, especially with newer diesels, are extremely few and far between. Unless one completely ignores their turbo going to crap.
