'87 300E cold start up integrator duty cycle?

Happy Holidays to Everyone,

I have the Bosch Injection Book by Charles Probst, and for the CIS system it decribes duty cycle during different scenarios. For cold start up it states that the KE system will maintain a steady 60% duty cycle during warm up. Upon testing my cousin's '87 300E, on cold start up (sitting overnight in the high 30F- low 40F) the integrator duty cycle on pin#3 of the X/11 connector shows a constant 48.6%. It stays there for about a minute then starts to vary between 48.5%-51.2%. I assume at this point it is in closed loop. Is this steady 48.6% reading during warm up correct for for this model or should it be at 60% as stated in the Probst book?

I also monitored EHA current and it fluctuated around zero mA +/- 2mA when the engine has been warmed up. I read the excellent article by Steve Brotherson in the DIY section but it has no mention of this particular cold start up scenario.

I am wondering if this is the cause for a longer cranking time when cold. The car has to be cranked for 5 secs sometimes longer. I did a quick test by unplugging the temp sensor in the back of the engine and tried just cranked without starting. The moment I plugged the sensor in it fired up.

The car has 101K miles. New plugs (bosch supers), Beru wire set, cap and rotor, air filter, fuel filter. As far as I know everything else on the car is original. The car doesn't use any oil and runs pretty smooth. Any insight would be appreciated
