Got to tell you what happened to my neighbor. He overhauled the engine in a dump truck. He had the front tires removed and the truck on stands. When done he started the engine and crawled underneath to check for leaks. As the air pressure built up, the large bags on the rear end filled up and pushed the truck off the stands and crushed him. He is living, was air vac to a trauma center, and I cant say much for his long term prognosis, but is in for many operations. Proper blocking when crawling under anything is critical, you dont get many second chances.
