Re: Yanmar 1GM10 runaway?

With a runaway, wouldn't the revs just keep going up and up as the increased revs draw in more fuel, more air and so on? I'm pretty sure it revved to a point but no further. Admittedly that point was somewhat higher than I would normally expect the revs, but then I wasn't looking at the tacho.
