Hello fellow Allis fans. Last summer my governer weights broke off taking the gear/bracket with it. I purchased a used assembly and installed it everything looked good and ran all fall . Now after about 50hrs of farming this spring the weights broke off again. I'm I missing something? I set the rpm to 1750 rpm last summer.
I sure could use some insite.
Thank you.

Buying a used governor is a gamble. In addition to the gears running smooth, make sure the pivot holes in the weights aren't worn oversize. If the weights are loose on the pins at all they can start to vibrate and crack. New weights and pins can still be had from AGCO.

The governor weights, pins, clips, gear and carrier bearing are all the same between a WC-WD-WD45 and D-17. The only real difference is the governor spring. A D-17 runs 2,000 RPM wide open throttle. So, if a D-17 governor can take that, it shouldn't make any difference in a WD45 because the parts are all the same.

1750 sounds like too many RPM..maybe that could be part of your problem...

Backlash is adjusted by leaving the three governor housing bolts snug, and pivoting the whole thing on the bottom bolt. The two top holes are oversized and bottom bolt is 3/8". The dowel pin is then drilled somewhere thru the governor housing into the block so it stays put and can be serviced on and off and always returns to the same backlash setting. If you changed housings, that may now be different.

Most of the time when governor weights explode, they damage the camshaft gear and maybe even the crankshaft gear. These gears MUST be in good condition so they run smoothly and the governor weights aren't being shaken when they run. Also, there is a dowel pin to set the backlash on the governor gear to camshaft gear. If you changed complete governors, this backlash should have been checked. Too tight or too loose is a bad thing.

How do you adjust the backlash with the dowel pin? And there is 2 chipped gear teeth on the crank gear I sanded them smooth there was noticeable backlash but i did not like how the driven gear rode on the inside edge of the crank gear.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: JB Weld - by Staff. JB Weld is basically an epoxy glue that does an exceptionally good job of bonding to cast iron and steel along with several other materials. As I mentioned, it is so common that I have yet to buy a tractor that did not have JB Weld used somewhere. It is sometimes used so well you can't tell its there and other times used as a sloppy quick fix. Finding where and how it can be used correctly is key to whether you are using it as an "inelegant hack" or an integral solution to difficult and expens ... [Read Article]
