What's up with my governor

Postby Clubless » Mon Mar 11, 2019 7:44 pm

Hi all,

I need some help with governor issue on my '55 cub. I have removed fan, air cleaner and disconnected linkage from both sides of the rockshaft. In the video I am moving the rockshaft manually then releasing. Before I remove the governor, I thought it would be a good idea to check in with the experts.

So, what do you think?

Thanks,
Gary

At a minimum, the two holes the spring ends attach to are wallowed out, allowing a lot of slop in the movement before the spring tensions. It's also probably time to replace the spring. You can weld and redrill the spring holes or size them to fit a piece of roll pin.

Bob,

Can the governor spring lever be removed without removing governor assembly? Thinking I would like to fix the elongated holes.

Thanks :thanx:
Gary

the lever slides off the shaft. IT may take some work but it slides off toward the block. Do not drive out the shaft in the governor supporting the lever if you are lever the governor in place. It will be too hard to get back in.

The part is cast so you can not beat on it too much or it will break.

I may try just replacing the spring first and adjusting the linkage between the governor and carb. The holes could use some work but you run the risk of breaking the part getting it out to weld.
