we turn on engine for warming, we go forward and begin to raise anchor… diesel is deciding to increase own rpms, kinda fast….oops runaway….
so all stop not work…..go below and as rpms continue to increase,, find the 11 mm wrench and crack all injectors, one by one until the noise stops…took all 4 to shut it down…..lotsa smoke out exhaust—-lost…fishermen thought we were en fuego…..we enlightened em and got a 500 peso tow into marina, with only 2 other small incidents–a slight grounding in 2 ish ft of water–good thing bottom is soft ..lol…and loss of steering—somehow the cable popped off the quadrant—i am so glad this happened with repair guy on board and in a lagoon and not at sea—-coulda been a lot less positive…
there was no detonation of engine, thank dogs, and there was no major problem , other than adding to the list of repair-me on this boat–sometimes it feels as if i have not done anything ..but i know i have–is still a shorter list than when i got this boat….
i am sooo glad this engine still has an intact block….we working on the reason exactly why it did this….
to be continued……
