SAFETY: ENGINE GOVERNOR REMOVAL & KILL SWITCHES

Post by JD »

1. For your safety, NEVER disconnect the governor of any governed engine, unless you also replace the factory flywheel with a billet flywheel and the factory connecting rod with a billet connecting rod designed for higher RPM's.
We do not want you or others to get injured.

For the safety of others, NEVER mention disabling the governor on an engine, running an engine ungoverned that was designed by the manufacturer to be governed, or exceeding the engine manufacturer’s maximum RPM’s, without also including the following DISCLAIMER in the post; "THE FACTORY FLYWHEEL AND CONNECTING ROD OF THIS ENGINE WERE REPLACED WITH A BILLET FLYWHEEL AND BILLET ROD FOR SAFETY."

2. NEVER operate your mud motor, nor mention on the Swamp Runner Forums the operation of a mud motor without a properly functioning kill switch.

Failure to comply with these rules will result in the post being amended or deleted by admin, and the member warned.
Continued violations WILL result in the member's forum privileges being revoked, and the member banned from the forums permanently.
This policy is for your safety, and the safety of all who read the Swamp Runner Forums. Thank you for your help keeping everyone safe!
