    New to the mini trucks I have a Mitsubishi 2 wheel drive with it has a model number UT 14 I attached the whole model number. the issue I have is that when you get to 23 mph the governor light comes on and will not go any faster. can this be bypassed to get a little more speed?
    Been doing some research on the governor does it have something to do with the governor weights in the distributor?
    thanks for the help

    The weights inside the distributor normally only have to do with advancing the ignition timing as the engine speed increases. Would not have to do with the speed limiting function. This is general info as I am not familiar with your vehicle.

    I've got the same model # and the same problem. Did you find a fix?

    The distributor advance weights have noting to do with the speed lifting governor. There is something that is hooked into the speedometer which limits the ‘speed.

    On the left hand drive Hijets in the S80 series, there was a pulse generator on the speedometer drive cable. When the pulse frequency, got to the 25-mph level, it activated a cutoff solenoid which stopped fuel to the main running circuit, and thus prevented the engine from running any faster.
