    200 carb 2.5l stuck at 3000 RPM

    So first time this happened was about two months ago on a colder moister morning where the engine would really just not go past 2900 to 3100 rpm. Other than that seemed smooth and fine. After a few minutes problem went away no issues for two months maybe 15 trips.
    This weekend same thing colder moister morning but it was stuck for maybe 2 hours or so at 3000 rpm then corrected and was good for the day.

    Seems like the high speed stator coils aren't working when its cold or Foggy? anyone have this happen before and know how to diagnose or know if its the stator or switch boxes?

    I tightened all the stator connections to be sure and that didn't solve it that morning when it wasn't working for 2 hours

    Thanks!

    Thanks I got the manual and DVA. Next time it acts up Ill find out if the stator isnt producing to spec. was just wondering if someone knew something like: oh yea moisture is shorting out at location x, or cold is causing an open at Z.

    Yea smooth as can be. And it either stops at 3000 rpm, but then once it clears that point it goes all the way to 5800 rpm and works for the rest of the day.
