Yanmar YSB12 -0 Turning Engine Off

New to this boat, sailing, etc.

The online manual says not to use the pullout engine stop to turn the engine off. Just pushing the speed control lever all of the way down on the Edson steering post doesn''t stop the engine. It just keeps running (slowly). Is there an adjustment for this?

I would talk to Yanmar about this. My Yanmar stops by pushing speed control all the way off. I hate and it is one of the things I am going to change before the season starts. With the throttle as shut off you have to be very careful when docking that you don''t turn of your engine. In a tight spot the last thing I want to have to do is take precious seconds to make sure I don''t kill my engine with the throttle.

You can adjust the cable (throttle), by making it longer with the nut that is on the cable. You can turn nut to lenghten or shorten movement of cable.

Take a look at the lever (throttle) on the Engine as it moves when you move the throttle in the cockpit. you may be able to lenghten cable at engine; if not you can lenghten cable in binnacle (for sure). But, it is difficult.
If you cannot fix it, this is really a question for a ''ENGINE CONTROLS" PERSON. OR, a mechanic could make a kill switch that shuts off the fuel to engine.
