Well it looks like you were right. It appears that my problem with
the 'governor', was in fact, a problem with the mounting of the pump.
The pump is mounted with 3 bolts up by the input shaft and one bolt
just below the 4 unions that deliver fuel to the 4 fuel lines. This
last one was missing. I must have forgotten to tighten it and it fell
out. When I replaced it the problem with the funny acceleration
It looks like I have recovered from yet another brain-dead error.
At this point I have not figured out how allowing the pump to move
sightly can cause such a noticable problem.
