Hi ,My name is***** will be glad to help. We can follow up as needed on here. Im not an employee of the site but I help on here as time allows in between jobs. Response time will vary depending on my work load , etc each day. When you get a chance grab the engine model information from the engine ID tag. Initially check for air between the tank and injection pump and for a restricted return back to tank. If those two are okay this points to an internal injection pump issue in the injection pump governor. This would require the injection pump to be rebuilt by an injection shop. Let me know.

Please take a moment to rate as that is how the site credits my time helping on the site or let me know if you need more help. 5 star and bonuses are always greatly appreciated.
