Yeah the IP is where I think I need to go deeper. The injectors have been professionally tested but not the IP.Ok, that's what I was going to ask was if it looks like some has gotten in there.
So that's a no, and your right no it's not going to jump time on it's own.
I've lost my place on this issue, so from the top:
Have you done a compression test?
This will tell a lot.
Have you had the injection pump and injectors professionally tested?
Because just because it put out fuel, it does not mean it's putting it out at the right psi.
I would safely say you have eliminated the hydraulics as any part of the issue as disconnecting it didn't make the engine run normally.
The slow rise in RPM and the drop in RPM when loaded are pointing to either the injection pump or the Governor.
Let me dig into the governor specs and adjustments and see if anything pops out, but I'm really leaning to the issue being in the injection pump or injectors.
Have we bottle feed the injection pump just to rule out any diesel supply flow possibilities?
The IP has shown:
- that it does pump fuel
- That the fuel slider moves freely
- that it sends good spray through the injectors
