Yeah, I did a bit more looking at it, you're right about the pin Matt. I didn't try resetting it per manual because the dealer told me the gear was gone.That's the retaining pin. Looks normal to me, but can't see if the flyweights somehow came off without shattering the gear. Have you tried resetting the governor per the service manual?
Thank you, but will skip the used stuff. I'm getting to the point of NOT putting used things on anything anymore. Starting to get frustrated with trying to save money and costs me money in the long run. Appreciate the offer though!I’ve got a good used one that I’m selling.
PM me if you are interested
Ok... So to set up the arm for the governor... in section 6A of the manual it talks about Early Tab version and Later Remote Mounted versions. How do I know which I have? The pictures are black and white photocopies - so can't see real well what they are trying to show. Also what would have caused it to slip on the governor shaft? Everything seems to be tight?Sounds like the governor gear is intact and functional to me. I don't think I'd take anything to that dealership again. They don't have a clue what they are doing.
You can reset the arm with the engine in the tractor. The procedure is in the engine service manual. I would do that before you tear it down. I don't think you are going to find anything wrong inside. The only other thing I can think of is that the little arm that is on the end of the governor shaft that is moved by the pin that comes out of the center of the governor when the flyweights are out has broken off. As long as the governor shaft doesn't spin around and around, everything inside seems intact and the external arm must have slipped on the governor shaft.
I can see both dogs when engine is rotated slowly and they will flip down as they come around to bottom stroke. If I slide a pick I to the oil fill tube hole and move the governor gear front to back of the engine, it has maybe 1/16" play at most. All the teeth on governor gear are there. When I move the arm that is attached to the intake manifold it will move freely back and forth to stops. It does not spin around ask Matt said to check.Can you see both fly weights (little steel dogs) on the back side of the governor gear?
Do they flop around on their pins as you slowly roll over the engine?
If so, then the governor gear is probably OK.
You have a "tab" style fine adjustment (it is the little ear in your pic on the throttle cable linkage arm...it isn;t really critical for this adjustment though.
The arm may have slipped on the shaft. Do the governor adjustment as listed in the manual. Make sure the arm is loose on the shaft, they twist shaft as indicated and reset arm by tightening nut. This is the base setting.
Make sure the coil spring on the right side of the carb is connected to both the throttle linkage and the governor arm as shown (this applies the balancing spring tension to the governor.
Start engine and watch the governor linkage. If working correctly, it should move the carb linkage to try and close the butterfly at high rpm no load (this is what keeps it from overspeeding). Hopefully this fixes it.
If the governor arm does not move...it's a bad sign. The little pin that the weights push on has probably fallen out and is laying in the pan...so it doesn't control. Tear down time.
BUT, they really aren't bad to tear down, AND, you don't even have to pull the pistons if you are careful. I have taken several down before...pretty straight forward.
