Does anybody know if the Woodward governor is shorter than the McCauley governor? I've got a McCauley on my IO-390 and was doing the left front floor baffle last night and with the cutout for the governor, there isn't enough room for the big, square fiberglass intake hole between the governor and the left sidewall. Its something like 1/4" to 1/2" too narrow and that *doesn't* take into account any mounting flange space. I'm wondering if the Woodward governor is shorter by a 1/2" or so which will make this all work. Basically, I don't see how I'm going to get the McCauley to work at this point.
Anybody have any height specs on the Woodward governor? Basically from the boss mount to the top of the arm would be helpful.
