Does any one know the max thrust of these engines when operated on the DC-10-10? What would your max take-off mass be? Any other problems with the aircrafts engine performance?
Thanks

CF-6-6K's produce about 41,000 lbs thrust.

DC-10-10's as a rule weigh 443,000 lbs maximum ramp weight and 430,000 lbs maximum brake release weight.
