[Amel Yacht Owners] Volvo TMD22 RPM problems
Anne-Sophie Schmitt <nearlynothing@...>
My experience has been that the smallest malfunction
in the folding prop will cause this. It can be
anything which prevents full deployment of the prop.
Can you get 3000 RPM in reverse? Usually a prop which
does not deploy in one direction will deploy in the
other. A tiny marine growth, pit in the metal, or even
poor lubrication can prevent deployment. The lubricant
has to be an extra special, extra sticky lubricant
specific to the folding prop or it's ejected at the
first revolutions. The fact that your engine will
reach RPM in neutral suggests it isn't the engine. For
some reason this engine is quite easily "overpowered"
by even small irregularities, such as just going
through seaweed. Hope thi helps. Claude Roessiger
