I know that losing or removing a governer can make small engines run faster. But if I want to get my 22hp of 16hp moter running faster what should I do with the governor.

My group runs all stock motors with the governor removed / bypassed. I'm sure the engines wear out earlier than they would without the mod, but we have had very few problems in 15+ years of running our tractors hard.

Doc Sprocket has a great write-up on governors here - https://www.atltf.com/t2575-governors-flywheels-and-an-internet-full-of-crap

Not to sound like this forum is a broken record or anything... but please look around and read before posting. This question comes up about once a month.
