john deere 3 banger diesel just ran away on me. fortunatly, i read the post about runaway diesels a few weeks ago and knew just what to do. i tried stuffing my shirt in the intake tube but it didnt work so i had to pull off the hose(rubber) between the filter and the intake. all this while the motor was stedily gaining momentum. im really exited. like, i just saved a 4 thousand dollor motor. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif. sorry, just had to share. and thanks everybody who contributed tothe runaway post!!!
