Add a zero - one and a half thou, which is a tiny gap and virtually impossible to measure accurately so I have to conclude it's a feel thing, hence a skill/art thing.  It affects a couple of different things, apparently one big one is the droop, which is strictly at max governed rpm, not across all rpms.  Based on the explanation of what's happening inside the governor, ie. the various slacks, clearances being taking up, I would expect that the 150 rpm droop is more of a rule of thumb than a precise, repeatable, happens every time exactly number.

I read from a 1989 version of the DD bible where it says 2450 no load and 2300 rpm loaded for a 8v71 from the da book not me lol, the so called tamper proof govoners are set at 2100 no load and 1900 no load

good luck
