The governor that transporter should be looking for is a road speed governor, which should be located somewhere on the throttle cable between the injection pump and the pedal.
* Not to be misleading, but 2 cycle detroits, along with a few others, run a unit injector. This style has the pump and injector all in one and the governor would be located elsewhere on the engine, with control rods connecting it to the injector.
I have two questions?(go figure)
From what I can tell is that my throttle cable goes directly to a fuel block?(it has an electronic fuel solenoid mounted to it) On the front top of my block and connected to a plate on a valve/rod/butterfly type? Also connected to that plate is a cable down to the tranny(545) and two springs to pull back to closed/happy position for idle I assume? The throttle cable does have about 7-threads showing to adjust it but I think that would mess with the idle speed.
1st question? Do I adjust the plate at the rod tighter for more RPM?
2nd question? I just watched a video of a man that added turbo to his natural breathing 8.2 to boost his? but didn't go into a lot of details or everything he had to change or replace? Is that something to look into?
Thanks for any thoughts/ideas good or bad.
I want to do this one time and caddie kid the other day made since when we were talking about rear gears.
I was told when I bought the bus from the old mechanic at the bus barn that if I adjusted the governor's then I needed to change the rear gears or they would burn up and two busses that his church bought one they changed gears the other they didn't and was paying for a rear end? so I have been focused on gear changes but Caddilac kid said in a nut shell/my mind that the gear size does not matter (properly maintained and oil) as long as your engine and tranny can turn them to your required speed. Not trying to put words into anyone's post/mouth?
Still haven't found a tach. So I have to do that before I touch/adjust anything. I was trying to find a plug and play tach. But the only thing I can find for mine gets connected on the outside of the alternator to read RPM and has to be calibrated with a timing light?(how accurate is that?) no electronics to connect to except a test probe in a wire?
Any ideas thoughts good or bad are appreciated
