      and intake manifold that
      had a smaller than passage
      hole to restrict gas flow.
      They are identical and
      neatly made. I am not
      certain but think they were
      removed after the first
      dealer check up as a break
      in device or possibly some
      kind of governor for an
      industrial application.
      We found it by accident
      when my dad was changing a
      motor in his wag. and the
      replacement motor could not
      get over 35-40 mph - dad
      tried switching the carbs
      and found and removed it
      and it ran great.

      Yep, it s the factory restrictor plate to keep engine speed down until the break-in period is over. Was the wire seal still on it? Dave C.
