Well, I finally started tearing in my Kgro today, pulled the engine and will start to take it apart. As you can see one of the piston rods broke, motor does still turn, will post more pics s the project goes along. I choose Old Holland because New Holland was already taken... Planning on painting it Orange! (I'm from Holland that's why....)

Boy, that bears a close resemblance to a Craftsman tractor I have. Too bad about the rod! Did you back that one bent bolt out or is that how it was when you took it apart?

That's how I got it, the previous owner toke of the side cover and found the rod parts. I'm pretty sure the engine can be saved, hope to have it apart tonight and will post pics. Basicly it's a old Craftsman GT build by AYP.

Good luck with the engine repair. You should be able to get another used engine if it's beyond help.

On another note, the bolt that holds the pullies on the shaft....is that counter clockwise to loosen or clockwise?

Got the pully's off and dismantled some more of the engine, found the remainder of the rod parts and some other parts that were loose (see pic) I assume that goes on the shaft on the lower left side in the last pic?

Yep, that is the governor assembly.
Am I looking at something wrong, or did the bottom rod break?

If so, it is very likely that engine has alot of hours on it!

They commonly broke the top rod, due to oiling issues.
Before you put it back together, you will want to address that!
About the only time I have seen a bottom rod broken is when they are either run completely out of oil, or if someone did a top rod repair and re-used the bottom rod. After many many hours finally the bottom rod will give it up simply because it is older.

Also, while you have it apart, check the oil slinger. If the rivets are getting loose, get a new one.

Hi RoosterLew, you have any diagrams of the governer assembly so I know how to put it back together? As far as I know it ran out of oil.
