Also, if you can, and have a healthy engine, I recommend removing the governor internally to pick up 1500+ more rpms out of your engine.

Just run your throttle linkage directly to the throttle on your carb.

remove the governor internal. Your governor can explode internally and really mess stuff up.

I would have to remove the fenders to remove the tires. No biggie.
