    The governor also needs to be changed.
    It's on the side under a dome cover and easy to change.
    Keep the diesel govenor, I might buy it from you.
    :D

    Governors are the same size different weights and springs, so it will be as easy as pop out the cover, pull out the governor, slide in the other one, put the cover back on, and you're good to go.
    :D
