Default How to install governor springs

Hi guys new to the site I have been lurking for a while but have not posted. I have a 95 dodge 12v that has some small mods, filter, 4 inch exhaust , fuel plate just not sure what number ? It is a auto and I just did the lockout switch and that works pretty good.
I've been looking on here on how to install the governor spring kit and was wondering if there is a post that I have not been able to find on how to install them maybe with pictures if possible.

Any help would be great , I already have learned a lot from this site

Thanks, John

Not much of a diesel mechanic but I know my way around a gasoline engine pretty well so I'm sure I can figure it out, and if I run into problems I know where to come ask questions.

Just did mine, take off the AFC and fuel plate and use the calipers before and after through the top of the pump, much more accurate. Install the springs through the plug in the side.

I'm a new member of the "no shim" club. The only shims I had were on the big spring you leave in.

Be ready to turn your idle down after the install. Loosen up the lock nut, start up the truck, put on a set of earmuffs before you dive into the enginebay whith it running, turn the adjusting screw until you get it back down, then lock it down.
