I second the post of making sure your emergency shutdown is in top condition. If this tractor has been sitting a few years, this first start is your greatest danger. One little spec of rust on the plunger and it is finished. If you're lucky, it will be seized in the no fuel position. If this is your first start, while you're changing the fuel filters, remove the fuel line from the lift pump and squirt it full of motor oil. This will assist in priming the fuel system. Every change thereafter, it is necessary only to fill the filters with clean fuel at the change interval. It will be wise to remove the rocker cover and make certain of free movement of the injector control tube. If an injector DOES seize in the no fuel position, you could spend all day with the mistaken notion that the engine isn't primed, when in fact the faulty injector is preventing the others from injecting fuel. All that being said, a runaway Detroit is not a common occurrence. It is best to have a way to stop it if that one little thing goes wrong.

Oh my God yes! That is one frightening situation. I can't think too fast under pressure, I like to have a plan ahead of time. I decided to fix all my neglected emergency shut downs after I saw a Farmall 1206 get chopped in half from an exploded flywheel. I don't know which would hurt worse, engine parts embedded in my body, or watch an engine get wrecked because of my shoddy maintenance.
