K241 governor cross shaft broken

Motor is off, flipped upside down. I got the piece of the broken cross shaft tab out of the oil pan. How can I get the broken tab off the shaft and replace without tearing out everything else?

Thanks,

Josh

Shoot, well, does anyone have any instructions on taking everything apart? Will I need any special tools to pull any parts?

Hi,
I think you can still get the service manuals from Kohler.

Re: K241 governor cross shaft broken

Governor gears are one of the first things in and last things out doing a rebuild. So if engine really old and low compression maybe you want to do the rebuild. People run them w/o a working governor it is not safe as governor controls max engine speed the choice is yours I do this on several older kohler k gravely I am not suggesting you follow my example just passing along information there are work arounds to set max engine w/o a working gov again I am not telling you or anybody else to do this. You have found a weak point in this engine's design it is apparently fairly common in k series including k gravely maybe mostly high hour engines not a technical expert on k kohler but I've known about it a long time. I can tell you absolutely for sure that nobody that knows what they are doing will ever do a complete k series rebuild w/o using new governor parts and much more new parts. With gravely walk behinds you could consider a used gravely k engine or possibly a repower see the yahoo gravely club. Stens and other sources for kits/parts if you do your own work a kohler k rebuild is maybe affordable send out to shop its going to cost so price out your options. If both engine/trans axle finished I'd buy another gravely price out cost for all parts then decide.

I have a PDF copy in my Google Drive. You're welcome to it. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NBy...w?usp=drivesdk
I had a conversation with the mechanic at my local shop since I'm working on a K341 engine. Some parts aren't available anymore. Do some checking before you get too far into it.
