^ now that's funny. but not...but funny.... Shocked Grin Shocked

But.... I get to chuckle twice ...  Grin

The worst runaway I was witness too started out like this...

I had replaced a head on an old 12E Cat grader on a job.
The boss (Master Mechanic) was doosh...
The oiler was .... apprehensive... to say the least...
The oiler was to add oil and grease the machine...and change the air filter... he did not have one... I saw him "cleaning" the old one...in gasoline....
I asked him what he was doing...he said...he was instructed by the MMd... I said you know what's going to happen ? uhuh he says...
I said were I you...I'd run that filter over with a loader...

so... I buttoned up my portion of the job... and as I was packing my tools.... I heard this awful sound....
I never looked back.  Undecided Shocked Angry Grin

I checked the operation of the flapper valve on my MC8 not long after I bought it.  Just a dry run without the engine actually running.

Trip solenoid operated OK but the valve didn't move - because the shaft was seized solid in the housing.

After an hour of freeing it up and then pulling it apart it worked as it should, and now I check it every few months.

Seriously, this event clearly makes me lose faith in humanity. How on earth did we survive this long? * shaking head *
