    Rpm

    I put a spring on instead of the silver piece and was able to adjust it to 2800. The spring has flexibility And it made a huge difference when I got it to 2800.

    Rpm

    that thing I circled stops you from increasing the RPMs. I took mine off to get it to 2800 I don’t know if it’s the correct way but no one could help me. I posted your same question here and other forums and got lectured how I didn’t know my machine. Again not sure if that’s the correct was to...

    Rpm

    Mine had a throttle limiter on the throttle cable. I took it off and adjusted it to proper rpms. Can you take a pic of it ? I called legends and they couldn’t help me. They stopped making the apex and prochem was bought out.

    Did you check to make sure the tach is accurate? I checked it on my snowmobile to make sure it’s accurate.

    I had the same issue with my apex. How low is it and how are you measuring it ?

    I'm Shutting IT Down.......

    I agree with what you’re saying I just don’t think you can say right now it can’t happen where you’re at or anywhere else. Unfortunately time will tell and some people can’t afford time. In a way I’m glad it hit my state the hardest first that way we’ll hopefully be the first out of this...

    I'm Shutting IT Down.......

    I guess it depends where you live. We have 33000 confirmed positive cases in NY. But we are getting the most tested.

    I'm Shutting IT Down.......

    If by washing your hands with soap and water rinses it I think a water temp of 190 and 400 psi would be doing a better job. Also its probably most likely not on carpet fibers maybe tile but it’s all getting flushed away. I guess I’m trying to convince myself that I’d be helping if I’m cleaning...

    I'm Shutting IT Down.......

    i also have read the kill temperature is about 133 degrees. So most TM get between 190-210 does that mean it’s neutralizing the virus ?

    Anyone own a prochem apex ?

    I couldn’t set it to manual specs because there was a throttle limiter on it. I took it off. But it was out there for a reason I would think. I asked to see if anyone else has the same thing on there’s. Called the company but couldn’t give me a definite answer why the limiter was on the...

    Anyone own a prochem apex ?

    Just wondering if you know what your engine rpm is set at idle and full throttle? Mine was set at 900 idle and 1800 full throttle. I was told 2700 full throttle and 900 idle by legends. Manual says 2740 but idle says 1500. I had a throttle limiter installed on mine that prevented me going any...

    Engine rpm

    That’s true. I do have it set up 4 to the door so it doesn’t seem like I’ve lost vacuum. Only started doing that for a year now. But I’d think if my rpms dropped that much I’d notice the difference in performance. When I turned the throttle to 2700 it sure sounds a lot different though. I...

    Engine rpm

    Well it might be underperforming because they are keeping the rpms under the max. But I’m thinking mine was set up even under the limits prochem sets. I just assumed my distributor set it up to spec. I did a tach test on my engine and it’s running at 1800rpm full throttle. Idle was 900. It...

    Engine rpm

    I have the 408 tri lobe blower and it has great vacuum. I have to change the throttle cable on the machine so it got me thinking about the rpm. I’ve been running it this way for 9 years 8000 hours. Didn’t adjust anything from when I got it. Figured it was set up correct now I’m wondering if...
