Good to hear, Greg. Sounds like you nailed it on the first time!

Your engines are naturals, right? Mine are natural 4.236 Perkins...your engines with 2 cylinders lopped off. They seem to like lugging along at 1800 RPM. I used to run at 2000 RPM for 8 Kts but the noise and fuel flow seem much better at 1800 (7.5 Kts). I saw a drop from 2.0 GPH per engine to 1.6 GPH per engine.
