Whats the safest rpm to run a kubota d600 without doing damage? We are running it and sounds like its around maybe 2000 rpm. The max rpm i read is 3600 rpm

I see two pages of Kubota engine manuals in the manuals section third tab from the left top of this page. Have you tried there? Don

Yes, 3,600 rpm.   To dial it in, get a digital tach.  They are cheap and very accurate.

 

HERE is an ebay page with some.  The top 3 are just like the one I have and I've had it a good 3 years and still works fine.

It's probably just a feeling I have but I don't like the sound of a screaming diesel. Run most of mine between 2700 and 3200 RPM depending on the application. Usually go by how the engine sounds.

That's why I like my Kubota F3060 so much over my John Deere F935.  The Kubota is so much quieter, engine and deck, than the JD.  2700rpm vs 3600.  The Kubota engine at the slower engine speed is awfully nice.

So your talking about this screw correct? The very bottom one with the nut on it is the idle speed right?345df97d6c8a4ce97726979cfb831ad8.jpg

Yes, I do believe the circled one is your high speed limit stop.

Is that the same as the fuel adjustment screw? Or is that somewhere else?

Not the same.  Not sure where the fuel screw is for your particular engine, BUT it's best to leave it alone.  Putting more fuel in their can wash lube from cylinder walls, speeding wear, plus fouls oil faster.

 I'm 67 and still like to see a little coal roll when the oil burner is under load.  :D

When i adjusted the throttle stop and it was reading at 3200 rpms it sounded like it was either missing or not getting enough fuel at WOT
