No such thing, that is what makes it a "diesel", like when you used to shut off your 80's car and it would run on...it was dieseling without any electrical spark.

Like David said, the only way to shut down a run-away diesel is to cut off the air supply. That guy that said he was going to disconnect the battery cable probably knew nothing about what was keeping that engine wide open.
Um....that was a joke.

Dave57210 I've seen pics of idiots trying to cut off the air supply with a towel or something similar. It just gets sucked in!

A chunk of plywood or a piece of sheet steel works.

A LONG time ago when I was in university, I had a summer job where I drove a piece of equipment with a 3 cyl Detroit. Since it was smoker at best, a system had been rigged with a "flapper" on the intake to kill it whenever it ran away (which of course made it progressively worse.) It ALWAYS needed a snort of ether to start it.

And yes, Brian - if it has sparky-plugs - it ain't a disease-el - although most disease-els in new pickups DO use a glow plug to help get 'em going first thing in the morning - esp in cold weather

FYI - the reason your compressor gets hot is that compressed air gets HOT. If you have a "zillion to one" compression ratio, then it gets hot enough to start the fire when the fuel is injected into the cylinder. It goes off fast enough to give the sound of a car engine knocking - therefore the "rattle" sound of most disease-el engines.
