    Volvo penta inboard 135
    I need help adjusting the idle on a volvo penta 135. It's on a 1997 17' horizon 190 by four winns. I'm not really a mechanic but can want to know if it is a easy fix or am I opening up a can of worms. Anybody have a clue how to do this? Thanks in advance mike

    But note that these can be large documents and can be time-consuming to download.
    I might point out that if this has started to die because the idle has become to low that this is symptomatic of other service needs.
