Ugg!! That is what I was afraid of. I would have to move the coffee table, a sleep sofa, then start pulling deck hatches. Never mind finding something to smoother the air intake.

Some folks had suggested shutting off the fuel, but my understanding is the runaway is the result of fuel feeding from an unidentified or unexpected source. This might mean closing both fuel fills and returns Two different sides of the engine since my shutoffs are on the tank and not a manifold).

I have my fingers crossed for you.
