Guest Posted September 12, 2010 Share Posted September 12, 2010 I have a BMC 1.5 diesel on my boat (rebuilt recently at huge expense), I now have yet another problem with it, it won't turn off. On the last couple of trips out it has run on for about 30 seconds after pulling the stop lever, but has stopped. Today I pulled the lever and the engine sped up instead of stopping. I have checked to make sure the lever on the fuel injection pump is moving fully across, and it does. Does anyone know anything about diesel engines? What would cause this. I managed to stop it by putting it into gear and pulling the lever, running in neutral and pulling the lever made the engine run slightly faster. I did notice something has fallen off, what looks like a cap of some description with wire crimped to it. I'm really hoping it's nothing major as I have spent many thousands on the engine already.
