This whole return scheme is pending it doesn't explode with you sitting inches from it...

Ooh! She's done. Did that happen to you, Russ, or was it someone else's engine?

Engine belonged to a guy that posted here often.
He disconnected governor and believed that to be the cause of ensuing carnage.
After I played a game of '20 questions', he revealed that he cranked it up, no load, to see how much it could take.
He found out.
He does not post anymore.
Note last pic. That is a bullet hole where a needle bearing passed through crankcase.

Hopefully, he learned something. Expensive way to learn, though.
The only thing that truly worries me about the governor delete I'm in the process of doing right now is the prospect of having a sudden load loss under the wrong conditions. For example, accellerating full throttle getting towards peak, and having the chain or belt fail while your foot is still on the floor. I can only pray I'd nail the kill switch fast enough. Flywheel or no flywheel, there is a potential for breakage there.

thats something to think about. i did some burnouts with governor and it was working hard then the chain fell off and it backfired. actually in my youtube video right when i tested it for the first time.

White (or blueish) smoke ALWAYS indicates an oil control issue.
Black exhaust would be a rich condition. Basic stuff.

Or he tipped the engine over in his basement? He is the dude who made the vent for his projects? Or am I getting him confused with another poster.

Russ, if one of us wins powerball, we each get vipers.... deal right?

Another +1 for billet parts. Briggs flatty stock rod failure after governor removal. This was done with a stock cam and minimal motor work. (worked carb, intake, header, timing, jetting, etc.)
You know, the things that can be very easily/cheaply done by anyone.

Be careful, y'all.
