Was easy to do.  Was planning on waiting till the engine was in the car. Then decided when cleaning up the pump i would just do it today.  Didn't use a new seal mine should be fine, if it leaks then ill get the new seal kit.

i guess it wouldnt be a huge job to wire a relay into the stop solenoid, trigerred by an electronic overspeed signal (either from tach or something else). cut fuel at specific rpm.....
how do we do that? anyone do this? anyone have an electric scheme of that?
thks

I removed the smaller spring and put a 1/16" thick washer in it's place.
 the governor still works and the power through the midrange and upper end increased.

I can't wait to do this mod! IT IS GETTING CLOSE TO THAT TIME :)

I think I will shim about.. as much as I can. or maybe be conservative?

Has anyone tried small shim and then went more shim? was there any increase in power? butt dyno readouts? increase in smoke? EGT's?

I usually replace the main spring with a solid piece of tubing and leave the intermediate alone.

Runs great, no de-fueling at all..

I've built a pump or two just for reference..   8)
