Re: Universal M18 - stopping using throttle push back

The engine stop lever/handle is separate from the decompression lever. They are TWO separate things. The throttle should NOT stop the engine. If it does, your minimum stop is set too low or your cable is too short.

Take a more detailed look at your engine and the data at Marine Diesel Engines and Engine Parts - Universal, Volvo, Westerbeke, Yanmar, MASE.
