Tecumseh OHV 6.5 Hop ups? Governor Removal?

A few Years back I got ahold of a brand new Tecumseh 6.5 ohv power sports engine. It was on my Atlas for a bit with exhaust and intake.

Whats the procedure for removing the Governor on these engines? Also is there any other hop ups I Can do to it?

I Would just trade it off for a Lifan Clone and do the standard mods but the lifan clone wont fit in the particular frame I want to use.

So I'd like to use this new tecumseh but make it a hot rod..

It's pretty self explanitory, once you take the side cover off. I've heard Batman's parts aren't good quality, BUT only from other suppliers. I've talked to him a couple of times. What a character I know a couple of guys who raced carts and they swore by his hop-up parts.
