Hey, I was wondering if a govener is something that only lets you go up to a certain rpm? If it is, is it worth getting for off-roading so you don't stall? Thanks

you mean for a tranny? it tell the tranny who fast the truck is moving to alow it to shift at the correct spot.

the governer and the tv cable on the 700r4 have to work together.

on the th350 the governer and the vacuum from the motor tells it when to shift /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

If I'm thinkin along the same lines as what you're askin, a govenor limits the rpms of the motor so you can't over (not under) rev the motor. If that's not what you're shootin at then please do ignore what all I had to say. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Good luck to ya in the future.

If'n I remember correctly usually they limit the amount of airflow into the motor. The one that comes first to mind is the stock turbo Corvair. I own one so that's why. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif They used a carb that would only flow so much air into the motor thus not allowin the motor to over rev. Other ways I think are chokeing the motor down with the butterfly. Anyways, that's just shootin from the hip type stuff. Good luck to ya in the future.
