From the manual: The relative strength of the fast component as a fraction of total scintillation yield is given by the YIELDRATIO. You should be getting only the fast component and none of the slow component, opposite to your claim.

I can't make sense of your attachement. Please, provide two separate histograms, one for YIELDRATIO=1 and one for YIELDRATIO=0.

No, the spectrum has nothing to do with the timing.
