is the choke and throttle combined in one? as in, when the throttle lever is all the way up, does it close the choke? or is there a separate choke control?

Just take this as a sign to remove your governor. Take the shaft out and thread a screw in. (you must tear bottom of crank case off for this), then just run the cable straight to carb.

if you run W/O the gov the valves will float at 4500rpm roughly, the flywheels are rated at 5k rpm roughly
so there are no worries unless the flywheel has been removed and was hammered on trying to get it off. My honest opinion.

Yeah, I don't know the limit of a flywheel, but valves will float before anything with the flywheel goes wrong as long as its in good condition. I do want to look into a electric motor that can explode flywheels on purpose to try and find what rpm's there good for.

My buddies and I have been running ungoverned engines on offroad mowers, 5 of them, for over a decade and we are not nice to them... we have lost a couple engines over that time, but never to a flywheel.

Doc will smack me (virtually) in the head for encouraging this, but we leave the governor guts in the engines and just bypass it by hooking direct to the throttle... the risk you take doing it that way is the governor internals can grenade and cause bad things inside your engine.... once again ran several engines for years this way with no prob, but your miles may vary.

Yea, the oppy on the banshee tractor is beat. Only way to run it is wide open, but we have an extra to replace it.
