I finally managed to get the timing cover off and the governor bumper spring did appear to be bent outward a little to far so I bent it back as much as possible while still alowing the bumper adjustment screw to pass under the edge of the spring if needed. When assembling the engine I used permatex aviation gasket sealer so removing the timing cover without breaking it was anything but easy.

Now I only need to wait for a new timing cover gasket and crankshaft pulley to arrive and I should be back in business, or at least I'll have a running tractor again. Whether or not the governor will work properly remains to be seen.

Where did you order the gasket from? Any auto parts store that sells Fel Pro either has them or can get them. I had a lower crank pulley split in the key way once. You do know you will have to recheck the end play in the crank again don"t you? If the crank pulley is a few thousanths different it will change the end play and will require reshimming or it could beat the thrust washers out. While I was at it I would order a new governor compensating spring. It will help the governor open up.
