Well I will be smelling exhaust and checking over the Perkins tonight.
The max continuous operating rpm is 3000 so 2100 seems fine although I may go down to 18000.
The Perkins manual was not much help on this but did give a few suggestions like oil in air cleaner or Piston Sizure worn valve stems etc.
Thanks,
Chip
