The only thing we have done to the engine recently is change all the fluids and oil filter, which it worked just fine after. Then I went to change the Racor primary and the on-engine secondary filter, and once I got the new filter base and filter installed and re-primed this happened. So...I believe it to not be a random problem since it was working fine right before this.
If possible, it might be worth a try to re-install everything back to before the high rev issue and see what happens, or to temporarily by-pass the filter in question?
