Default Dishpan Governor Gear Removal.

I am needing to replace the governor gear on a FBM Dishpan. What is the best way to get it off without breaking off the weight ears? Are the threads left hand or right hand. Thanks for any help. Jim.

On some of the later ones, the gear was pressed onto the governor shaft and the only way to get it off is to split the gear. Bummer!...However, Hit & Miss Interprise has replacements ...
If it is a screw on, It has right hand threads, and should come loose with a light tap on the weights...If it won't come loose, It's most likely a press on.

One word of caution...Don't clamp the pot metal bracket in a vise and try to tap on the governor...you WILL break the bracket!!!!...Hold the bracket in your lap, get a good grip on the gear, and try to loosen the governor..
Yes...I speak from experience!

It can also be broken, in your lap too, speaking from experience.

Best way I've found to remove the gov is to hold the bracket sideways and put the gear in a vice (we have brass covers for the jaws). You'll find the gear will catch evenly on each side. Gently lock the jaws on the gear and take a large crescent wrench and catch the yoke and turn it off. It is a right hand thread on all the open crankcase F/M models and left hand on the enclosed crankcase models like the Style "C". The style "D" is right hand also. Remove the gov drag spring screw in the side of the gov yoke before turning with the wrench. Usually the yoke screws off with very little torque. On early models the yoke and shaft are one piece and the gear screws off but the gov gear that usually needs replaced is the pot metal gear on models around 1925 and after and this gear is cast on the shaft and when replacing you'll need the gear and shaft. Our new gears are steel and the shaft and gear are made separately so you'll have threads on both sides of the shaft. Probably said something here that's confusing as h--- but I confuse myself sometimes. Ed

Thanks for the info. Serial numer is 606848 which puts it about 1925 or so. the gear looks to be pot metal, so I assume it is a press fit not threaded. So now I need to buya gear and a shaft. Do the pins and weights match with the new yoke? Jim.
