Re: Overpropped; What to do?

NO NO NO

It is a motor with mechanical fuel injection which is THE problem being resolved

The mechanical fuel injection system will input excessive fuel based on throttle setting regardless of the RPM the motor makes

The extra fuel does bad things to motor and it is as simple as that


Any displacement hull will have a Huge prop slip number due to the need to NOT drag a bucket size prop through the water when sailing
