"Ahead running" vs. "Running ahead" - not the same
17:53 Nov 28, 2008
"Ahead running" can be used in a marine context, though "forward running" is evidently more common. It's a BAD IDEA to convert it to "running ahead," which would change the meaning to suggest the engines were running faster than some other process. You could adjust it to "in forward-running mode", or I suppose the other suggestions, viz. "forward gear" would work since it's talking about engines.
