New Tach, Rpm Questions
Posted April 26, 2012 - 09:07 AM
Are these numbers in the right range? The manual says idle should be 1200+/- 75 rpm, but I've also read these K241s like to be around 900. I'm concerned about the high speed RPM too, I don't want to be running too rich. I turned the screw in (toward lean) until it started decreasing from the 3500 RPM and then backed out about 1/8 of a turn from there.
Also, I'm wondering what RPM you guys are running at with a load?

Before now, I've never had a tach at my disposal & was just curious about people's real world experiences with where their tractors/engines were happy.
In addition to the idle RPMs, I've also read that it's not a bad idea to run these engines a little rich (because of the cast iron block & alluminum head) to help prevent overheating. But I'm also scared of carbon buildup from being too rich. So I'm not really asking how to adjust the carb, I'm asking more if people know what RPM ranges their engines are happy in.
