But I am not a mechanic so don't expect this to happen every time.

Me neither but with every troubleshooting I learn something. When you go out there its you and your boat.

Re: PERKINS 4108 LOW RPM UNDER LOAD...help!

checked under the rocker cover? I had a perkins that the push rod popped off the rocker. It ran great! but smoked and gained fuel in the oil. (pushing raw fuel past the rings as the valve wouldn't open.) When we removed the rocker cover it was obvious the push rod was just sitting there along side the rocker.
