Re: Yanmar 1GM10 runaway?

Interesting scenario.

I think I would:
- check the oil level...check its viscosity by running it between my fingers...and smell it to see if there is diesel fuel in it.
- pull the governor cover and see if there is any obvious loose linkage or unexpected wear including fly weights and springs.

Then I would think some more and scratch my chin. And check my tech manual drawings and ponder some more.
