On the front of the engine on the left side you will find a bolts and locking nuts one of them controls the travel of the throttle. Have someone move the throttle while looking at that to determine which screw is the idle stop and adjust.

Left side facing aft, starboard side of the boat and engine.

Are you familiar with Marine Diesel Engines and Engine Parts - Universal, Volvo, Westerbeke, Yanmar, MASE Has all osrts of bvlowup diagrams not included in your Manual for Dummies book.

Good luck, it's easy.
