I would worry about something else besides a runaway engine Huh with a 50 year bus that should be the least of worries

Cheesy cool, one less thing to worry about...

Ok the DD blower is a roots blower it has lobes most bus people all they see are the 2 lobe type which is standard those lobes are not solid they are hollow made with thin aluminum with plugs in each end  

When the engine spins so fast on a 8v71 it happens around 3800 to 4000  rpm it blows the plugs the lobes will swell and shuts the engine down I have saw this happen before on a bad buffer switch adjustment and no I didn't do the adjustment  

90% of the time when one over revs above the limit it will cost you a blower not a engine they don't throw rod,pistons and debris all over the place as some visualize they may spin a bearing and most the time that doesn't even happen  

Sometimes I wonder how GM and Detroit made the 8v71 without the help from the internet and a bus board  Roll Eyes worry about other things geez

A curmudgeon's reputation for malevolence is undeserved. They're neither warped nor evil at heart. They don't hate mankind, just mankind's absurdities. They're just as sensitive and soft-hearted as the next guy, but they hide their vulnerability beneath a crust of misanthropy.
