    I am new here so I did a search and was unable to find the answer.

    12 year old Kohler CV14 has seemed to have lost contact with the governor gear. While the engine is running I can hold the governor shaft and it feels like something is hitting the shaft so I an guessing the gear has broken.
    Is there anyway to replace the gear without taking the engine apart?

    Nope, The engine has to come off the unit and the sump (pan) taken off to replace the governor gear.

    Oh, Welcome to LawnSite !
