I just did it, it was pretty easy. The only problem I'm still facing is if I'm supposed to use the same bracket for the throttle cable that now goes to the carb. There seems to be a fair amount of slack in the throttle cable, and even at the full out adjustment, it won't open up the carb the full amount?

There is a way to bypass it without moving the cable. Look at the shaft that comes through the middle of the governor bracket. The top of the shaft has a "D" shape that goes into a "D" shaped hole in the bracket. Remove the governor bracket from the shaft, then drill out the top hole so it is just a little bit larger than the shaft. Re-install the bracket back onto the shaft, but don't tighten the clamping bolt(you'll see in the pic that the nut is missing). Now the bracket will pivot on the shaft, but the shaft won't be able to move the bracket. YOU WILL HAVE TO INSTALL A RETURN SPRING ON THE CARB THROTTLE!!! You would have to do that even if you routed the cable directly to the carb too. Here's a pic:


If you ever want to hook the governor back up, just tighten the clamp back down.
