Re: Westerbeke 30B Deceleration Stumble/Stalling

. . .a test was done with fresh fuel in jug piped directly to IP (using a external small lift pump and inline filter) and a new return line back to the jug -- thus, my boat's fuel system was totally...

Re: Westerbeke 30B Deceleration Stumble/Stalling

Okay, the decel stumble problem was solved by replacing two governor springs and a fuel rod (governor linkage to IP rack). I think the culprit was actually just one spring that was weak. It was an...

Re: Westerbeke 30B Won't Get Max RPM with Load

Thanks Paul. Could you or maybe someone else help me identify my IP. And I would like to know details about what rebuilt parts kit it takes.

This is an inline mechanical PFR type, three cylinder...

Re: Westerbeke 30B Won't Get Max RPM with Load

Thanks. There's no fouling of prop and I've now checked out just about everything else. This included, for testing, hooking an independent lift pump and supply and return lines directly to injector...

Re: Westerbeke 30B Won't Get Max RPM with Load

Thank you. So far have checked air intake, tank vent, Racor 500, lift pump output. Exhaust doesn't appear to be restricted. Saildrive seems to turn freely. Need to check on-engine filter, return...

Westerbeke 30B Won't Get Max RPM with Load

My Westerbeke 30B Three propulsion engine, with sail drive, always achieved 3600 max rpm under load, which is the specification. Now I only get approx 3000 rpm under load, but can adjust stop screw...

Re: Westerbeke 30B Deceleration Stumble/Stalling

Thanks. I did set the idle up some from spec, but causes a bad transmission slam when shifting gears and really didn't help. For a picture of the injector pump that you requested, the best I can do...

Re: Westerbeke 30B Deceleration Stumble/Stalling

Have removed throttle cable from the governor bell-crank lever to which it attaches and operated it by hand. That lever has adjustable stop screws for both idle and high RPM. Each is fitted with jam...

Re: Westerbeke 30B Deceleration Stumble/Stalling

Thank you. Can't say that I disagree with your reasoning. Here's the thing: this engine runs perfectly in all respects except for the rapid decel stumble.
I'm thinking there's some kind of overshoot...

Westerbeke 30B Deceleration Stumble/Stalling

Suspect that I have a governor problem and it's a lot of disassembly work to get at those parts to fully examine them. But, from what I can see with the top cover off, the governor parts all move and...
