Governor

Whats the best thing to do with the governor?


I'm removing all the governor tin work as it wont last long in a salt water environment.


I don't really want to remove crank case cover to remove the governor internals unless I really need to.


So is it better to:


Let it rattle and let it do as it pleases?
Use a stainless steel spring to keep it in the closed throttle position?
Use stainless steel spring to keep it in the full throttle position?
Some other alternative?

Simple, case off, chuck bits out and replace cover, block off the hole in the case. Have you not done it before?

In the past I have put a spring on it from memory, but can't remember which way I had it set.

Set to pull against the governor, start it up and you will see the way it behaves.
