7116 no-load RPM and adjustment

Recommended Posts

I just got my optical tachometer and measured my 7116 no-load WOT at about 3050. The only reference I can find to WOT in the owners manual is when it lists maximum ground speed at 3600 RPM. Idle is listed at 1200. I have plated with the 2 stops on the throttle rod behind the governor, but I'm out of throttle adjustment range on the control handle. Is that adjustable for additional travel, or am I missing something here to adjust up to 3600?

There is some sort of bracket / clamp near the top of the manifold, that holds your throttle cable in place. You can slide the cable in the clamp to get more rpm. Usually it is just a metal "band" around the cable with 1 screw thru it. You will likely have to take the screw out and spread the "band" to get the cable to slide up a bit. It shouldn't take a lot, and if yo go to far, you may not be able to get back down to idle speed. Just play with it ;)

Thanks, I didn't see that before. There is a lot of travel left in the throttle handle on the idle end...when you push it past where the small nuts on the rod stop it, there is quite a bit where it just moves the cable.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
