I have seen a few pictures of them, and it looks like they are simply lightened up somewhat to reduce centrifical force.

A photo of a corvette style governor. Please keep in mind that a matching valve body on a vette is calibrated a bit different for this design of governor.

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
