Governor help.

Post by Jenjr9899 » Thu Sep 05, 2019 3:36 pm

I have a flathead screw driver pointing to a screw on my Mules governor. It holds some of the governors linkage together. The screw is loose or striped(?) and cannot be tightened. It is affecting the Mules ability to accelerate. What size would this be. Would there be a local purchase replacement screw, washer and nut?

The screw securing the arm to the throttle cam is a 10-24 x 3/16"

You do not have enough room between the cam and body of the governor to use a nut.

1-You can drill and tap for a larger screw i.e. 12-24 see US Screw Size Chart below

2-You can buy a replacement arm that uses 2ea mounting screws that may hold with the your loose screw and the 2nd good screw.

Contact me as I can provide the replacement.

This is your original arm and it only allows 1ea mounting screw.
