Backwoods, have you had a look in the manuals section to see if there's a service manual or parts manual for the 126 there. That should show you the correct governor connections. You may want to post a picture of what you have and the CC experts can take a look at it for you. The service manual may also help with the shift lever. Sorry I can't be more specific but I'm not experienced with the CC tractors.

Hi backwoods;
I can tell you the problem I had with my 70. The shifter got weird and did not shift right. I pulled the shifter area apart and found a broken roll pin in the shifter handle. I allowed it to slop around. It will give you a starting point anyhow. If I remember correctly the shift tower came out the top.

There should be a spring on the throttle to governor linkage:

The Kohler service manual is here:

There is a 126 Parts manual. I took this pic from it for the shifter:

Part number 3 (the cup shaped piece) on the diagram that Kenny posted is welded to the shift handle from the factory. That part often times breaks free of the shifter and allows the lever to flop around in all sorts of directions. There is actually a groove in it in the front side and there is a pin in the shift housing part number 8 that rides in the groove to keep it aligned.

The picture doesnt do justice to how its actually assembled. The handle and the cup are actually installed from under the shift housing and then part numbers 19,4,5,6, and 7 are secured to the shift handle from the top and the roll pin number 2 holds the whole thing together as a unit. The entire housing is then bolted down on top of the transmission.

I've never had the pleasure of removing one of these, so your post helped me understand it all better. Thanks!

Thats the way they were from the factory. The cup piece (number 3) is not fitted tight to the shift handle. There is filler material there and the hole in it is pretty big. Bout the size of a quarter like you said. My advice is to toss it and get a new shift handle or a good used one. I've never had luck at getting them to go back together where it would both work properly and also last. As for a pic that breakdown is probably the best you'll find.

You will need one to fit a 106, 126. I am not sure but one from a 104,124 may be the same as well. Anything older or newer will not work as the shift handles are shaped differently. I will pm you some info.
