I just got my new to me Cummins R72 its a 94 so I'm assuming it would be the L10, when I drove it off the trailer I noticed that the throttle lever was a lot looser than on my Deutz R62 (probably just linkage) but it seemed to hit full idle at about 2/3-3/4 of the lever and top out at 2200 RPM, I was just wondering if that was the normal operating range

Mine is a 2000 with the M11 and it is just like yours, lever seems loose and wide open is around 3/4 and 2200rpm. The reason it's looser than the Deutz is because you are just tuning a potentiometer under the dash instead of a cable back at the motor.

Thanks, I was pretty sure that was the case, I just didn't want to get deep into some really good soybeans and not be full throttle

We put it in some 60 bushel soybeans today. I wasn't there to see it run for the first time but my field hand said that as soon as he hit the beans it dropped to about 1900ish and made the alarms go off. We're going to try fuel filters tomorrow.

When you take off the filters make sure you have good fuel flow when you open the valve up, I had to blow back through the line into the tank and now it flows like a garden hose. I've been through this before.
