Same size except the piston is a lil bigger. We're talking apples and oranges here. There is no governor on these motors like the honda gxh has from the factory. They are rev limited through design by the flywheel magnets and the cdi being different on the 142f, not the 144f. The aleman and crazydan can explain this a lot better. It states on the grubee site there is no rev limiter on these motor, 144f's. They recommend even to use a tachometer to limit your rpm's to 6800 in order to not over rev the motor. A governor limits the throttle on the carb directly off of crank shaft speed by mechanical means. Does not apply to HS 142f and 144f motors.
