Hi Erik, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. The best place to start is to verify your pressures are in specs and the engine runs properly and no fuel system problems , etc that would allow the engine to bog down too low for no power or low power, etc. What other symptoms are you having with this ?

Engine runs -- pumps are rebuilt everything functions but I'm not getting my rotational torque
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

Have the pressures and flows been checked with test meters and gauges?
