M Squeal in the governor area

Postby BJ Moretz » Fri Dec 14, 2012 4:37 pm

Hi Guys

I have a 42 M that occasionally emits a squeal from the governor area. It doesn't do it all the time and is a high pitch. Seems worse at idle. Or maybe I can just hear it better. LOL Has anyone run into this ? I am not well versed in governors yet.

Thanks

Never heard of such a thing, and I can't imagine what it could possibly be...

If you could catch it in the act on video, it might help identify the culprit.
