    Default Starting diesel without governor on Pony

    My 212 grader doesn't have the governor installed on the pony. Will the diesel, once starting pinion is being engaged, bog the pony down, and stall the pony out? I'm having the pony carb rebuilt at the moment, so I am in a holding pattern, and just curious if I need to search for a governor. Thanks as always!

    I have been starting my D311 on my D2 for years without a governor on the pony--I just make sure I have half throttle when i engage the pinion and then increase the throttle a little before I throw the decompression lever

    Without a governor you will be as busy as a one armed paper hanger! At the very least you will need a very easily and conveniently movable throttle.

    I have 2 spare governors, NOT rebuilt. If you want one and willing to pay the shipping I will send you one. PM me.
