Pic of 87 MC SS Governor....



This CZ gov looks very much like an '87 BR gov. I'm not certain, but the difference may only be the use of two springs rather than one. Perhaps Bruce, Mike or Greg can expand on this?

Included are dimensions for the weight heights. A person might be to take a standard OG gov, grind it down to stated height, install CZ springs and have a close match for a CZ gov. This has the potential to move OG shift points from 3000 rpm to 4500 rpm.

I haven't tried this myself, but it looks good on paper........


Added 2/3/02:

I have weighed the primary (large) and secondary (small weights) of the CZ gov using a cheap, pendulum style postal scale. Since the scale is very cheap, I don't expect these measurements to be dead on. However, they are in the ball park.

Primary weight = appx. 14.5 grams or 1/2 oz.
Secondary weight = appx. 32 grams or 1-1/8 oz.

If one uses these weights to grind a standard gov into a BR or CZ gov, I recommend erring on the heavy side. You can easily grind more metal off, putting it back on is a little more involved.

Picture is attached to this one (I hope)

Only difference is the speedo gear count. SS is 10, green, and GN is 11 or orange. All else is the same. And the primary weight spring should be removed on both. :)
