Re: My Horror Story

Didn't go back to read everything but the runaway may be caused by an accumulation of blow-by oil vapors condensing in a low spot of the breather hose or somewhere in the manifold. Runs ok until enough oil accumulates, the runs away, using the oil up until the next time. Maybe the crankcase is overfilled. A stretch, but maybe your electric pump is "over supplying" the injector pump?
