How do you turn off a semi truck governor?

Cars & Vehicles
Tractors and Farm Equipment

Keep in mind that in "theory" a diesel engine that is not governed can continue to accelerate until it eventually disintegrates. Therefore you can not "just" remove or turn off the governor on any diesel engine.

However if you simply want to increase the top end speed of a vehicle "a bit", you will generally find the governor attached to your fuel pump. Diesel governors are normally a screw in or out adjustment type of thing much like an idle screw on a car but much larger. These screws are locked in place by a tamper proof piece of copper wire that is sealed with a lead seal. Without breaking this seal you can not make any adjustments and if you do remove the seal you will find that you may very well be breaking the law, so I wouldn't tamper if you live anyplace that vehicle inspections are carried out.

P.S. The tamper proof seal makes the governor adjusting screw very easy to spot

This can be easily done by computer by a mechanic tapping into the trucks computer system and resetting the governed speed. Most shops have these computers, but wont touch it as they are tracked as to where when and who changed it in the system.
