I had the same thought Very Happy

is that a 2.25hp wd8 by any chance? looks to be running quite fast Smile
If you want it to slow down you'll need to modify the governor Smile

I know a guy that did that with a lister F governor to slow it down, I think he used a Lister D one and converted it!

No, its more simple than that on a wd8, you remove the adjustment screw and drill another split pin hole about 3mm from the end at 90deg from the original and use the smallest split pin you can, it then lets you wind her right down Smile at 2.25 hp they are set up to run at 900rpm

The 3hp WD was set to run at 1250rpm, bit odd when you think Petter set there A1 3hp engines at 1500...

That WD runs well!

If you want to "load" the pump you can reduce the 22mm down to 10mm on the outlet, this will give the pump some resistance and make the engine work(look crap though)

to use the extra pressure produced perhaps culminating in an ornate garden fountain display instead of just reducing the outlet could be the next rally craze..... Smile
