Re: Motoring RPM

It definitely sounds like there is something not quite right with my set up. I will check to see if the throttle on the engine is wide open when the lever at the helm is pegged - I realize I have never looked at this. I had thought that the the total distance the throttle lever at the helm can move the throttle cable is determined by the geometry of the mechanism but maybe the forward stop is adjustable. It is an Edson helm which I have assumed is standard equipment. The engine has always started immediately and has never smoked. Maybe it is time to have a good diesel mechanic go over the engine.
