Problem is standard - engine
is old and some of the metal part inside the cold start/governor box need bending to actually start working again
e.g. you need to open the box and understand first how it works - not a easy job ! prepare for hours of thinking screwing and unscrewing the cap of the box...
after that start bending in very small turns and try, bent try etc. until you get it right and start hearing the click ....
I have no idea why volvo
has designed so complicated mechanics for a boat engine
which should just work in any conditions..
next time I have issues I will put and additional control lever with string and solve all this nightmare
my engine is on 1772h on the clock
