flywheel interchange D24 -->D24T?

They also have the flywheel listed from the same D24.
Does anyone know if the FW is different (different timing marks, bigger clutch...) for my 85 745TD vs a 244 D24?

Absolutely, the governor will not cause it to die. I was thinking just in terms of "idles but won't rev up".

Fuel restriction and/or air leakage in supply line is the #1 thing to investigate.

Dumb question, but are you sure the actual throttle lever on the IP is moving when the pedal is pressed? There is a complex path from pedal to cable to multistage bellcrank to IP.

Are the governor/throttle springs modified in the top cover? It sure seems that something is pulling back the fuel at 2500RPM.

Not sure about the diesel 6 cyl, but I just went through this on a 1.8L gas 4cyl, and found that besides the obvious problem of a lack of oil feed, the camshaft in a mechanical head has a larger base...

Any suggestions for sources for a 3-notch MLS gasket?
