Default Westerbek 7.0

Wm. have you checked the oil level in the engine governor? or more importantly, have you changed it in the last coupla years?...

The Westerbeks have hydraulic speed governors (belt driven) that are often over looked untill the speed is no longer goverened. just a thought.....
