I think this may be the explanation to the lack of stopping power from
engine going down a hill. " THE BOSCH PUMP".
Yes I have done a lot of experimenting to back that statement up.
Idle setting is a tad high if she no drags her feet. Simply go to a
hill and do two runs ---- one with fuel ON and one with fuel OFF.
Fueling increase as RPM goes up no matter you foot is off the pedal.
A gas engine does not increase fuel per stroke therefore even a very
high idle setting give lots of foot drag.
PS: Further if you set the diesel idle too high --- it will run away on you
at no load.
