Worn Governor Shaft On Command Vertical

Recommended Posts

Specifically the shaft on vertical single cylinder inside the block that supports the governor gear assy – has anyone had problems with the shaft tapering down, allowing the gears to become disengaged and race the rpms? If so, was it under the warranty period or over and how was the repair handled? Our shop has seen 2 or 3 that were on the Regent models purchased between 2002-2004.

I have a similar situation here in Wisconsin. Not my machine and I told gent to take it to a dealer and if there was peculiar circumstances he might try for a policy adjustment. CV 16 Kohler.

Never seen anything like it before. Do you have any idea how the wear occurred? I would certainly contact Kohler if you have seen more than one. The only cause I can think of, since it is on the inside of the engine is debris in the oil, or maybe gas diluted oil. Hope this helps- Andy

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
