|Volvo md3 throttle linkage issue
|Posted on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 - 02:25 am: ||
The linkage between the throttle lever and the injector pump keeps coming apart.
I have to pull the pump and very carefully line the linkage back up and lower it down. It starts and runs fine.
When I come back the next day, the engine cold, after a bit of cranking it will start, run for a couple seconds and when i work the throttle, it starts to rev but then dies, and will not start again. The throttle control now feels really easy, and I can tell it no long is effecting the injection pump. It won't restart until I remove the pump and relink...
Seems like some kind of cold start device allows the linkage to go too far and slip off? (Is there a cold start mechanism on this motor?)
Or have I some how lost some part that prevented the lever from going to far allowing it to come apart?
