I would agree with John(above) that 3100 is too high for continuous operation. Max RPM is 3600, we cruise at 22-2500, anything above that and we start to see more smoke/steam out the exhaust. If you run it again at normal RPM and don't have an overheat alarm come on you probably don't have any problems.
