I am (or I am trying to) replace the shaft in the governor and I'm having difficulty removing the 'star' that drives the balls. Is it just pressed on the shaft or am I missing something? Thanks, Sam

tractor sam,

YES, the star cage for the balls is pressed onto the shaft.

I recommend heat to warm it up before and during press off removal. Measure and record the set point before removal. Be very careful not to damage or ruin he star ball cage................This part in not available.............We have new shafts on stock here.

Thank you. I have it apart and have now assembled the governor on the new shaft which I believe came from you a few years ago. Heat was the magic ingredient needed. I now need to make a spacer as the balls can fall out so I think the curved race is moving too far. I think the book spec is 0.23-0.24 so I'll measure and shim to suit. Thank you, Sam
