Replacement Governor in Place

(photo not mine)

Last night, I replaced Ringo’s governor (circled above) with an unproven, yet hopefully, GUP. In order to free the current suspicious one from the tranny, I had to partially disassemble the rear suspension to lower the inside mounting of the lower control arm. That was over an hour of beating, banging, and prying before the 51 year-old joints broke loose. By the time I had it the replacement governor bolted in and the suspension all back together it was too late for a test drive. My fingers are crossed in preparation for tonight’s spin around the block.
