Hello and Welcome.

My name is ***** ***** happy to help / advise.

Certainly if it wont go above 1500 rpm - AND its overheating you describe, there is a need to check the timing.

An engine that has the timing out - retarded , will do exactly as you have outlined - so yes I would advise to start by re checking that and go from there -

Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..

~>>~~>>~ Meanwhile now at this point- Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that .

.. Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out --

Best Rgds, MIKE
