How fast is too fast?

Recommended Posts

Bruker

I finally got the Command back together after replacing the crank seals. The engine was totaly covered in oil and grease boogers so a thorough disassembly and cleaning was involved. I must not have got the govenor settings just right as although it runs great it now runs at ~3700-3750 rpms. Is that too fast or should I try to adjust it back down to ~3600 rpms?

Thanks for the info, that's good to know. Now obviously the higher the rpms, the more likely something bad will happen to the engine but what is the maximum "safe" rpms, 3,600?
