Subject: Perkins 4108 - Increase Max RPM

Hi, I have a Seamaster 30 with twin Perkins 4108 engines and TMP 2:1 gearboxes. All are rated at 4000 rpm (49HP) but the engines appear to be governed to 3000 rpm (37HP) which I understand was done for commercial use. - My manual shows two types of injector pump, one with an adjusting screw for max rpm and one without. My engines have the one without. Can anyone explain how to adjust the pumps to allow full rpm and power. I know the max continuous rpm is 3000 but it would be nice to have something in reserve.
Does anyone know of any reasons why this should not be done?

Regards,

Brian.
