Re: Universal M25 losing power

Have you ever been able to rev to 3K?

Different max revs in fwd/rev could be tied to the gear ratio differences, together with perhaps an overpitched or oversized prop (assuming you've never reached 3K).. also (maybe more relevant) max revs when trying to tow a secured dock away would be different than underway, I'd think....
