Good morning engineering types, I have a Perkins
Prima M60 and can't find any reference for the high idle RPM
on the internet
I was motoring this weekend and I could get 2400 RPM
. I wanted to get an idea of my high idle RPM to the max RPM under load. I took the engine
out of gear
to see what the maximum RPM would be and it roared past 4800 rpm. That's not right...it was way to high and it should be within 10% of max rpm so I need to address the prop size. But first I need to set the fuel pump
to the High Idle RPM for the M60.
The manual says there should be a data plate on the Bosch fuel pump
that gives me this number but there is nothing on mine. I called Perkins
and they can't find the number I need to use to set the fuel
pump correctly. The engine
data I find on line says that the engine produces 59 HP at 4000 rpm so I am thinking that that is the right number.
If anyone has a Perkins Prima M60 and could run up your engine and tell me what your high idle is set to I would appreciate the feed back.
