I just installed a proofmeter on my 49.
Pretty easy to do. I found my governor on eBay.

Salvage yards, classifieds on tractor sites, ebay if you're desperate. Ask around. Good originals are best. You can buy new offshore aftermarket replacement governors from numerous sources. Some of them might even work for a while.

You'll need the late model governor with the proofmeter drive, the cable, and the proofmeter. That's it. Simple bolt-on job, no other changes required.
