I've got my 4-53T Detroit running. Brand new head and injectors. I've set the fuel rack but when I fire it up its rolling coal at idle and the idle sounds way to high. it seems like its dumping way more fuel than it needs. possibly related to this issue I also cant kill it with the kill switch. the couple times I've run it I've had to snuff the turbo to stop it. I've adjusted the buffer screw and idle screw and it had little to no effect. I'm out of ideas at this point.
