Why is that ironic Steve? The aluminum hoods had nothing to do with governors or any other part. It was a last minute change on the fly needed because the original steel stamping dies were not made correctly; they failed to compensate for plastic deformation/shrinkage and would not work. Charles Sorenson had a son who owned a foundry and it was he who cast the hoods out of aluminum so Ford could meet production and the release date of June 29, 1939. By s/n 700/800 or thereabouts the new steel stamping dies were ready and applied.
