questions question and more questions
Hi all you sailors and sailorettes, sitting here on my 40 foot monk ,having just finished re-doing the thrust inhibitor(Damper) and replacing the shaft saver, all went well and on to the next project. I have a simple question which may sound silly but "Trawler" and a "Yacht". The next question I have is more of a mechanical issue and I'm only seeking discussion or ideas as many of you have MUCH more experience than myself with this issue. I have a 6 cylinder Perkins engine, upon start up it idles fine 600-700 rpm. After warm up it idles at 1000-1100 rpm which is too high. all the input I've received so far leads me to believe there is an issue with the injector pump. (governor or metering valve). My question is ,if possible could not just dial down the idle ? It will idle slower upon start up, but will top out at whatever I set it(600-700 rpm).
OK now, Feedback?
Many many thanks for your continued interest and support with these "little " things.
