Lube up the new oring for the governor shaft with STP and install it on the shaft. Install the shaft until it just sticks into the governor area just enough to get both washers back on the shaft. Put them on in the right order.
Look very carefully how the governor is assembled. There is a thrust washer (slightly blue color) that goes on top of the feet of the weights, in a groove on each weight. Then the black sleeve is slid onto the governor shaft. Push the governor shaft in a bit more but don’t allow it to move the black sleeve out so there will be room for the governor linkage.
The governor linkage, twists slightly as you raise it up from below. It’s a snug fit, but will make it. Screw in the two 3 point screws with their aluminum or copper seal washers to hold the governor assembly in place.
Make sure the oring is lubed very well with STP. Screw the governor shaft in with an allen wrench until it bottoms. The pump shop that advised me said to screw the governor shaft out until it’s flush with the face of the pump. Then screw it back in 1.75 turns. That’s what I did. Add the jam nut and torque it down.
