24hp Honda governer removal


New Member
Would anyone have a pic of a non governed 24hp honda? (how you hook it up). I just installed a comet 1190 clutch and am very happy with the results, but, by what I hear, there is quite a bit of untapped power by removing the governer. I presently have the spring zip tied, but, I can see how it still stretches, I know there is a solid piece that can take the place of the spring, but, by what i hear, it works better to remove the governer linkage and go direct. Also, I have about 1/2" at the tightest point when you pinch the belt together. I can slide the motor to get about 1 1/2" if needed. Is it better to have less, or more?
Thanks to all that can help.
