You may get lucky and someone here will have the parts you need. Otherwise add a tach and you become the governor, kind of like driving a car down the road. When a load like climbing a hill you need to add throttle, and eez off when leveling out or going down hill. Mowing or snow blowing might be a bitch when the load lightens suddenly and the engine over revs.Big problem? Little problem? Or not a problem at all? Was gonna post this in the Kohler forum but in the interest of continuity figured I'd ask here., Like I mentioned earlier I'm waiting on hydraulic hose so started taking stock of the engine. A '72 K321A Spec: 60209D . And it appears there is nothing left from the governor other than the shaft in the block. All linkage and associated clips are gone. And it also appears that not all parts are still available and the ones that are... well looks like it would be $150 and still not have everything. Any and all control of engine rpms are from manual adjusting of throttle cable. I know the PO was running this way and thinking worse case scenario is that I will have to continue to do so. How much of a problem is this?
