Anyone got a stock run or info on the HP/TQ at around 3200rpm on the 4BT? I'm thinking since they're goverened down they might actually have a little more power than 105hp as they rev just a wee bit more.
Don't know as that has anything to do with the question. True, few run there, but that doesn't say anything about what the potential power is. The one and only reason for governors is to protect the engine and extend service life. They have no other purpose. Diesel engines are not governed for the purpose of extracting maximum performance.I don't see many diesels running that kind of RPM...
The formula for Horsepower (in our application) is:Interesting thought, DarylB. I know on a gasser the hp/tq both supposedly peak or converge at 5252 rpm, not sure on a diesel where the peak overlap is.
Wow...I have known the formula for years, but never knew the explanation behind the 5252 number. Very interesting math theory.
From Den's First Gen Dodge Tech Info site:Ok.. Question, and mebby a stoooopid one.
Where does the 366 spring go? I mean, between what 2 things does it hook? I've not found 366 spring install how-to articles that have any pictures.. (Have I just missed those??)
I *think* it links the control lever (where our accelerator cables attach) to the tensioning lever that moves the fuel delivery control collar. If that is the case, then I assume that the 366 spring a higher rate spring than the stock one, right?
