I have a continental au8 also missing the governor plunger. Not sure, but I believe the original was made of some type of fiber material . been thinking of making one out of piece of aluminum round stock, not sure of the length . Good luck.

Can the plunger be removed to get the size by just taking off the cap ?

Pull the governor plunger from the DB I bought last year for the cordwood saw attachment .I was a little surprised to find this
Part of a 1/4-20 brass bolt , just a little shorter then 7/8" ( 55/65" ) I've never even tried to start it so I can't be of any help to how well it worked

Makes me wonder why the OEM plungers were changed/missing ,,, maybe the original ones wore to the point that it the governed speed was off ?
