While you ar changing the filters, It would be well worth your time to make sure the Emergency Butterfly in the intake manifold is totally functional. I used to plow snow for a local contractor who had a Michigan loader with a 4/53. The throttle rack stuck wide open, and the cable was froze up so the motor was wide open in the middle of town, at luckly, 3:00Am in the morning. I hit the breaks, bottomed out the loader boom and ran the bucket into a curb, Got on radio and called for help, and a fellow operator came over to my aid and ripped the precleaner off the hood and stuck his hat and a rag over the intake to kill it as it sat there screeming and churning the tires.
Loren, the Acg.

Not all applications had an air shut-off.

The thing to do would be to have a piece of board to use to close off the intake. Don't use your hand, especially over a turbo inlet.
