Hello Levi Gibson,
I am not familiar with your governor but the GB I worked on may be the same type. Are you building a puller? You said that it is not working right? Explain! The RPM's are controlled by the high speed adjusting screw. The more the governor travels the more speed.Another way to get more R.P.M.'S is to just cut about 1/4 of the stock spring, where the coils are the lightest, and make up the difference with washers. It will make the throttle respond much quicker with the same amount of the original travel. The spring and the weights oppose and are in contact with each others, so there is no gap between the spring and the governor's weghts-actuator. The enigne may surge if it is not set up this way, that the reason for the washers.
Guido.

Hello Levi Gibson,
It sounds like the weights are overtaking the spring tension. You need to get more spring tension so the weghts will govern the engine but at a higer speed. Can you post the governor breakdown or a piture?
Guido.

We have a 1959 gvi and the governer linkage is pretty worn. The high speed screw was adjusted as far as it could be. I took a piece of wire and tied about three coils together on the governer spring and got the rps up where they were supposed to be.
