Bronze Governor bushing install?
« on: July 18, 2014, 07:30:09 PM »
Any tricks to getting them in?  Got a 33 AVS from a buddy and I'm putting in my brothers G/P.  He had drove the old one out and I dressed it up on a lathe and tried to reinstall it with no luck before destroying it.  I put it in the freezer for a few days and it helped some but still failed, tips or tricks?  Put it in from the inside or outside?

Thanks, Tom

Tom, I would sand the outside and bevel one end, then put a bolt through the bushing and the block and use the bolt to pull the bushing in. You can always sand it so it goes i easier and use some 609 locktite to retain it.
