and unfortunately it doesn't show my govenor. Thought if I could find out who made the thing they might be a source for the diagram.
The Injection pumps--including govenors--are evidently made by a subsidiary of Perkins and finding an engineering drawing of the device seems all but impossible due to the proprietary nature of the equipment
. I and several other engineers have be trying to obtain the drawings for some time without success and even the chief technician at Southeast Power, the only certified Perkins repair depot in sothwest Florida
, reported that even he was unable to obtain a copy of the document. You may be more successful in your search and, if so, there are many others that would like to have a copy of the document but don't hold your breath.
