Hi Everyone!

Anyone know if there is supposed to be an inside seal on this governor shaft!

This is a canted view of the bottom of a Honda GXV 530 that has a very frustrating oil leak.

Any ideas how to totally stop it are appreciated; Thanks.

The shaft rotates less tha 1/6th turn, but, still leaks. It has to remain free to move also. There appears to be no way to remove the arm from the outside to force an O ring or leather seal in there either.

HELP

After a lot of time and effort on phone--email-- and internet research, found possible solution..
there is a seal on the inside that requires a plate coming off this shaft inside the oil pan then shaft removal to get at the seal!

Parts illustrations are very vague and I found it as much by guess as any other way!

Waiting for the new part to show up! I will update when I get it in; and see if it actually is right, and does solve the problem!

Tough little engine; just hard to chase the right parts for!

Sure would be nice if they put the seal on the outside. Looks like a lil bit of work to change. Good luck.

I don't know how your Honda engine matches up with the ones JD put on the f510 & 525 series mowers. I have a 510 and have had no luck at all getting the oil leaks stopped. I have had it to the JD dealer twice for the problem. They say it's fixed but the fix doesn't last very long. They have slowed it down a bit but still leaks when sits between mowing. I can't see anything leaking when it is running. Oh well, I spent enough money on it so will use it as long as it will go (17 years and counting) and then replace it when the time comes. Hope you have better luck with yours.
