That was great!!!! :rofl: :clap: :up:

I had to watch twice because the kid says at the end that the rag got sucked in. It didn't - he completely freaked & pulled it right out of there & ran like a girl. :lol:

If that was a gas job it probably would have grenaded by the time they were able to shut it down. Funny stuff!

That happens to Detroits alot. The old guy shoulda realized the fuel rail was suck wide open, with all the white smoke pumping out the exhaust when he was trying to start it. He might've known that was going to happen, and thats why he told the kid to throw the rag over the intake, 'cept the kid paniced. I don't blame him, who wants to stand next to a screeming diesel!
If you can't turn off the fuel, then block the air inlet.

I bet the kid had to get new underwear.
