Governor Throttle Spring Lever

Postby Fool on the Hill Farm » Mon Jan 02, 2017 1:09 pm

Happy New Year All! Is there a way to remove/replace this lever short of pulling the governor or the front of the engine of my '48 Cub?

If you remove the governor bolts, and rotate the governor, without removing it from the engine, you should be able to remove the lever. I've changed a couple of springs, that way.

thanks ScottyD'sdad! I have the head off and noticed the top of the lever was broken - the throttle rod being connected to what was the lower - now the only hole. Got a replacement lever and spring but the lever hits the side of the fan hub support. By just loosening the bolts will I need to do any gear realignment?

I have done it that why but I really do not like tight spaces. Since the head is off and the hood is off I would take a few more things off ( generator, fan, air cleaner fan shroud ) and give yourself some room. ( if you are that far in with the head off you want to replace belts and do good clean to the air filter give a clean the electrical connections on the generator and regulator/ cut out and oil the fan anyway)

Set the engine to TDC #1 compression before you loosen the governor. You may also want to replace the bumper spring in the governor which is easier to do.

It is a mag of battery/coil ignition?
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

No timing problem, unless you pull the governor out. Pivoting on the gears, doesn't affect alignment.

be careful doing that as the mounting gasket may not survive the rotating then you have an oil leak to fix
