Re: 2GM 15 dies when I put it in Fwd
Well it certainly should not need that much fuel to turn in gear at idle. Is there any possibility that the prop moves forward on the shaft spline or shaft moves forward under load and is binding somewhere?
Can it make somewhere close to maximum RPM at full throttle.? When it is under forward load does the rear gearbox thrust bearing, shaft seal or stuffing box get hot? You may have to run it for a while to note that.
