  I saw a pic once where there was an electrical component on the 
front side where we just have a plate.  I don't recall if there was 
also the cable or not.  I seem to recall it being a to retard it for 
certain conditions.  It wasn't really clear just what it did.  May 
have been an additional advance for low load conditions since 
there's something that does something like that, on some models 
of VE pump.
