Even many 110v motors will operate at less voltage (just hook them up to a light dimmer and watch). But I am hearing that the failures associated to Walbros (fewer than the rumors portray) are most likely due to feeding them low voltage and causing the motors to overheat and fail.

Rao, any thoughts (honestly, not sarcasm).
That is complete BS.
