    Tecumseh H50 governor

    I have removed the governor from my H50 and there are a few things that I am uncertain about. I've looked at the other gov. removal threads but my engine is different. I have taken out what I believe to be everything, and tapped the hole. Please see pic for questions.

    The rod is fine.. It's not in the way of anything.. The holes look to be your oil catchers where the oil gets slung into your bearing...

    I saw in my manual where it tells the torque settings, but I'm unsure of how to install the crankcase back on. My bearings are riding on the crankshaft.Should the catchers be in opposite positions when tightened?

    You can't move them can ya? as long as it's all there ya should be good.. Make sure the seal isn't kinked or anything.. The bearings are usually pressed onto the crank shaft.. That is probably fine.... I dunnoo... as long as the gasket aint messed up and theres no extra parts floating around in the motor you should be all good..

    Yes you can move them. You can take them all the way out. The catcher has a lock nut on one end. Maybe I'm missing something.

    OH hell I see where we're at here.. What have ya got going on? Have ya got the cover pressed on how it all goes?

    NO, I'd lock them both in clockwise so they don't rotate back unlock when ya go to tighten them down.. Damnit I get lost sometimes..

    From reading the second paragraph, I guess they have to be installed in the locked position. The diagram appears to be showing the bearings inside of the crankcase slot. My bearings are pressed onto the crankshaft. Man I'm having bad luck all across the F*ing board.

    OK the job is finaly done thanks to Restore kid and Bigevilone2. NOW it runs as it should. Although, I'm a little timid to go full throttle and stay on it.
