Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Rough engine at idle
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Thanks so much for the help guys.
Joel - good point I’ve been getting lazy with the signature!
I’ve tried to rock the engine to test the mounts but it does not rock at all easily. The mounts seem/look ok too to my untrained eye.
I’ll bleed again and perhaps also spin on some new fuel filters for good measure.
I was also looking at the throttle cable which is slack on neutral so I could adjust that a little and also a ‘stop’ position screw it has that is currently set so that is does nothing. It looks as if this should be setup to prevent the throttle rocker arm from rocking back beyond a set position. I’m keen not to just crank the throttle cable though and mask a bigger issue but perhaps at least till I get to Martinique (or perhaps Grenada)
Thanks Bill for Dediers contact details. I’ll try him and let the group know if he is still around.
All the very best
