What a fantastic how-to video and kit.  It should be quite easy for an average skilled person to accomplish.  Excellent job, Tom!   \./8

Good job Tom,  Even though I'm a pro servo guy, your technical adaptation skills are amazing.  \./8    In your video you indicated the removal of the longer spring attached to the governor arm would help the idle of the motor!    Please explain a little more, and is this true for the servo operated throttle? ???

Thanks John, hopefully your servos won't let you down. lol The spring between the governor arm and throttle can be taken off of any of these motors, whether old or new, servo or cable, the spring is just there to open the throttle when the motor slows down enough for the governor to stop functioning. Just pop it loose from the governor arm and let it ride the shaft, if you don't like it then put it back on the governor arm, no need to remove it completely. It is also the reason for the backfire on these boats during shutdown, throttle goes full and the engine sucks in fuel and spits it out into the hot muffler. Without that spring the throttle stays shut and no backfire takes place. The ES-kape comes with a throttle control spring that is stronger than the governor, so the governor has nothing to do with limiting rpm and is just functioning as a throttle return mechanism.
