    Has anyone had experience with glen denning repairs? It stopped working on the sea trial. (Operator error.) And now there is a whirling sound coming from the throttle housing at the helm.

    Call Glendinning directly. They have great customer service. If you're lucky you might even get John Glendinning himself on the phone!

    Spoke with Glendinning. Common problem. Retention pin. Snapped cable or a plastic part on the MASTER throttle. If it were the slave, the rpms would go to max. Mine goes to idle. I'll let you know. Thanks.

    dredging this up...sorry.

    Sea Trialed a boat with a synch. Throttle cables seem VERY tight. is this normal due to the synch?

    What did the surveyor say about the operation of the synchronizer?

    You have to learn the procedure for sync in the engines. On ours once sync is engaged push port throttle wide open then operate both off the starboard throttle.

    No, it shouldn't make a difference. There are tension screws that can be adjusted on the throttles.
