Default What Max RPM do you run on yours?

Hi guys,

I have been using AMT's (mainly Netherlands) since 1997, but every now and again I get a lot of different views on what the Max RPM should or should not be. Don't get me wrong, I live by Bennie's word and all my engines are set to his advice. But nevertheless I would like to know what you have as max RPM on the following engines:

1 - Original Mercury made in USA BEFORE the AT-180.
2 - The AT-180 (USA).
3 - The Mercury HP (Netherlands).
4 - The Pegasus Mk1 (Netherlands).
5 - The AT-280 (USA).
6 - The Pegasus Mk2. (Netherlands).
7 - The Pegasus HP (Netherlands).
8 - The Olympus (Netherlands).
9 - The AT-450 (USA).
10 - The Olympus HP (Netherlands).

Thank you, if it helps, just quote my number in front of the engine to give me your max RPM (not over RPM). If I had left out any AMT engine version for these (not the newer and bigger ones), please let me know too.

Cheers,

Jan

I believe my Olympus HP is set to 112,000 and my Mk1 Pegasus is 117,000.

My question is, my Pegasus is called a Pegasus in the manual, not an AT280 (I did have a later AT280SP at one time) but it is most definitely AMT USA, the manual says so. It's from 1999. I also had an old Mercury, from AMT USA, called a Mercury in the manual. So when did USA drop the Mercury, Pegasus, and Olympus Moniker and start just using the AT180, 280, 450 designation? When was it that AMT USA and AMT NL parted ways as well?
I love my AMT's, I've tried most of the other brands, but always come back to my AMT's.
