Greetings to all,
I'm looking for advice or tips on the procedure for adjusting the throttle/gearshift setup on my boat.
I have a Yanmar 2qm15 diesel engine
coupled to a Hurth
and these are operated by two brand new 17ft long Morse C33 cables
connected to a near new Morse MV2 Single
Lever (side mounted) Engine
Control. However, since installing the new MV2 control and cables
I am having trouble getting the adjustments done right.
According to Yanmar's recommendations, the engine should be at idle speed
when either forward or reverse gear
are engaged, but I haven't yet been able to achieve that ideal situation. I've spent hours buggerising around with the various adjustment points on the engine, gearbox
, and cables, and now have it going into forward gear
at around 750rpm which is near idle speed, but when I slip it into reverse the engine jumps up to around 1500rpm. At this speed the gearbox gives a loud clunking noise
as the gear engages and I fear I might cause some internal damage.
It seems to me the problem is a design flaw caused by the amount travel the control lever actually has, because it begins opening the engine throttle well before a gear is fully engaged. Having reverse engaging at this faster speed makes the boat more difficult to manouvre into it's jetty mooring
, particularly when I am alone.
So I'm hoping someone on the forum experienced with these morse controls can offer me some advice, thanks.
