Pierce governor

Are governors rare for AA trucks? Are they valuable? I have a pierce governor a friend gave me for a AA.

Thanks,
Matt

Probably for a machine engine. Such as a Smith air compressor or a piece of farm equipment. Speeding in an AA is extremely hard to do.

I could see where it would be useful if it was equipped with a pto for belt driven equipment. I haven’t seen one on an AA, but years ago I new a fellow with a ‘47 jeep with pto who used it to drive a cane mill. You would somehow disable the governor for highway driving I would assume?

Agreed, damn sure not gonna speed in an AA, unless you’re in a school zone!
