Matt Miller : it runs Yay!!! cleaned out a bit of carbon and rust at the same time lol

deadwreckage : Huuuuu lets just spray ether until it runs cause diesels have a controlled explosion sequence lol then runaway like a bit h when the paper you stuff in the intake doesn't hold

Chillkoot Markowee : I stopped a runaway lawn mower engine just in time, had to rip my shirt off and stick it over the carburetor in shop class.

Nickster : They don't build them like they use to, 30+ years since it's been cranked. 10k RPM blowing flames out of the exhaust like nothing lol.

William Fitzpatrick : They used ether on it! That's what broke it... It's amazing how good they run on crank case oil.

Plur307 : I love how the kid claims whatever he was holding was sucked through the intake.  Watch and you will see him clearly throw it on the floor and run away in fear.

Jamie Marie : this can be a very dangerous situation

RobotWillie : I kind of think the door says Walla Walla,Wash. on the bottom. Thats a large town here in Washington near the Oregon border, my youngest uncle lived there a while and I visited him a lot. Its a cool town and I loved going to the I think its called Pioneer Park. So I guess the truck at least has local connections to me somehow. (I'm in Spokane) Can't tell what the business says, maybe the last part of it says holt. Like someones name that ended in holt, or the business's name. They call it the town so nice they named it twice. =)

Normalguy35 : I'm sure all the ether didn't help.

Dustin Mozader : Now that it's warmed up it's ready for a spin around the block.

Luminya M : Wow! That old gentleman is a boss!!

Kyle Combs : good way to clear excess carbon lol

SMOBY44 : Chicken shit didn't leave it on the intake long enough to do anything, then he threw it to the side. Love when he says 'It sucked it right out of my hand". I hope grandpa watched this video and beat his ass with that 2x4 he used to shut it down. The chicken shit couldn't even finish the job at the end. Had to hand the rags to the old man to shut it down.

GDepics : I will admit, the first time that That has happened to me, I freaked out a bit...now I just roll my eyes over and hunt for a book, a board, rags, Anything!

blacksonne19 : Thank god for the old timer! Kids were gonna let her blow. We had a 77 R700 runaway on us. Its definitely a scary thing. They van rev like a bastard! We had no baffles twin 5" screaming!

Mitchbandito : Brown cap chicken
