If the engine is at idle, touch the flywheel under the truck. If it's running away, plug the exhaust.

+1 I mounted a rubber boot on a wooden dowl pin to hit flywheel to cut off. Under normal circumstances I will not plug pipe because rush of fuel can hurt glow plug.

I use the rubber end of a tool or plastic from a tool and run away if it's upside down I drop a kick of my heal right on the flywheel it works everytime

If the engine is idling your thumb works perfectly fine to stop the flywheel. No gloves needed.

I was told that, so I gave it a try. Maybe I'm just a bitch, but it did hurt.

Don't be tentative just block it with your thumb people get burned when they apply their thumb too slowly the flywheel gets some time to grind some flesh

I have seen a few guys with sore fingers, so I either put the car back onthe starter box with the switch off so the stationary starter wheel stops it, or I use the toe of my boot,
I have seen a guy panic with a run away and stick his finger on to the flywheel, it went down to the bone pretty quickly. poor bloke was in total agony. I stopped it with my boot against the exhaust before administering first aid. That finger was pretty ugly to look at

Run-away = engine is revving out of control.

The thing that makes the most sense to me would be to either block the exhaust or intake, but I'm not too sure.
