I'm doing an engine overhaul on a 2N. When I removed the governor, I noticed 1/8"-1/4" of play along the axis of the governor. I've found no mention or specification for this in my FO-4 manual. I also looked at the governor rebuild tutorial at the N tractor club site. It shows a fiber washer between the Drive Gear and the Ball Bearing Base, but the FO-4 does not. Which one is correct? Could this be where the end play is coming from?
I'm also trying to decide if it's more cost effective to rebuild this unit or to buy a complete new one... The balls and lower race have pretty large flats worn into them, and I'm not too sure about the condition of the rest of it (Bearings, bushing, etc.) I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

I went thru a similar problem on my 8N Ford governor. I added up the cost of the various repair parts and quickly found that it was less expensive to put all new inards(including the outside governor spring) in the governor housing. All parts shud fit together with no lost motion. The governor is a very critical item and small wear here and there can quickly reduce its response to load changes. Remember that that engine is only about 20 horsepower
