decrease high idle speed.
The second setting is full load, which is a
"reference position" where the fuel control linkage is held
while the torque rise cam is adjusted. This is a
temporary setting set with the synchronizing pin. This
setting is shown in the Fuel Setting and Related
Information Fiche as "full load."
Torque rise fuel setting is greater than full load
fuel setting, thus making the torque rise setting the
"maximum travel" setting of the fuel control linkage.
When the high and low idle speeds are adjusted
to the specifications given in the Fuel Setting and
Related Information Fiche, install the plate and the two
bolts. Put a seal wire through the holes in the bolt heads
and install the seal as required on other Caterpillar fuel

In the past only "static fuel setting" was listed in
the Fuel Setting and Related Information Fiche for the
3500 Series Engines. This fuel setting was "maximum
