Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Volvos.......
Do you have the 78hp Volvo with a governor ? Can you tell me how the governor works--and what might upset it ?

Alas....in neutral the revs do what they oughta do.
I will have to risk trying the local Volvo agent.
Incidentally, to anyone who has had Volvo work done near Athens, does Mantalas Kyriakos have a decent reputation ? Anyone else ?

Will the engine run at 2800 rpm unloaded (in netural)?
If NOT, the answer is not fuel starvation (because that would take very little fuel) but a possible problem with the injection pump or speed governor.
If YES, then... I am not sure...
