You can run the MYT motherboard to 120 MHz (60 MHz x 2.0) but AFAIK, that's the fastest you can go: based on my experience, if you set J43 to 66MHz, then the system won't boot.  You need the MDx or MZx motherboard to run at 66MHz.

8640/8641 Micro Channel Processor Planar Jumper Settings 

Text 
   For the PC Server 320 Micro Channel Systems, there are two System board FRUs: FRU p/n 96G1340 supports 75MHz and 90MHz only. FRU p/n 96G3694 supports 75MHz, 90MHz, 100MHz, and 133MHz. 
   For the PC Server 520 Micro Channel Systems, there is one System board FRU: FRU p/n 96G2648 supports 75MHz, 90MHz, 100MHz, and 133MHz. 
     In addition there are two versions of 96G3694 and 96G2648: Original planar (Level D & E): No J1, J12 (2-pin), J43 (6-pin). New planar (Level G): J1 (3-pin), J12 (3-pin), J43 (6-pin). 

   On the new planar (Level G), a new jumper J1 (3-pin) was added AND J12 was changed from a 2-pin to a 3-pin jumper. Jumpers J1, J12 and J43 control the processor speed.

J1 (new planar) is located to the left of the processor and J12. 
J12 is located to the left of the processor. 
 J43 is located a little less than halfway down the system board beneath the processors. It has three double jumpers (6-pins) corresponding to each oscillator located right beneath the processors.
     The three oscillators from left to right are 50, 60, and 66 MHz. When you jumper the pins, you are grounding its corresponding oscillator thus disabling it. 

There were two different boards. They're made by Micronics - and the first series (Board FRU 96G1340) had only 50 and 60MHz available, while the later series (Board FRU 96G3694) supplied 50, 60 and 66MHz. The Server 520 used basically the same boards, but appears to be 66MHz capable right from the beginning.

The earlier Level D and E planar had a J43 consisting of 2 x 3 pins and J 12 of 2 pins. The Level G planar had a J43 with 2 x 3 pins, J 12 with 3 pins and J 1 with 3 pins. 

The EPRM has the pinout and use for the various settings. See below:
