Re: Cruise and Max RPM #solution

Ryan, Have tried to manually advance the throttle. Perhaps the throttle linkage /cable may have slipped in the engine compartment. I have the TMD22a and max out at 3100 rpms with a fixed prop or my Maxprop, which gets me to 8.3 kts.

We have the TMD22 with a fixed 3-blade prop (the original spare, I think). When we first got the boat, we could rev to about 3000, and we cruised at about 2400. This season we could only get up to about 2100 even with a freshly cleaned bottom and prop. I discovered the turbo had seized, which seemed like the obvious cause, but nothing changed after we had it replaced. I'm trying to find a fuel problem, as that's the only other thing that might explain it, as far as I know.
