block of wood works every time. forget about hands and shop manuals. and like what's been said, CO2 works. Seen a few run away in the army, the
multifuels. It was running on high octane gas at the time, came in overheating (it was 105 F at the time), screwball mechanic took over safety shut off to get at the IP, started it up and away it ran. lucky that Motor Sgt seen it before, had a block of wood and covered the intake. the intake feed
pipe crushed due to the force of the turbo intake, and the metal tube cut a 1/4" groove in the wood block, but it did come to a stop, without wasting the engine or blowing up the motor pool. Loved those Multifuels...NOT.
