Done a little more wrenching on the Superior today. I had to take the rear bearing off the side shaft to clean it so I made some timing marks. After a good cleaning I found the original timing marks and another set some else had put on there. The factory timing marks are out by one tooth. Whoever worked on the engine last left the set screw out of the bearing stop on the side shaft. It had slid up about six inches from the bearing so it was doing no good, I found an inspectors mark under the bottom part of the bearing support. Hope it shows up in the pics.

The gov. shaft was stuck but I got it free with a little oil and tapping back and forth. There seems to be a lot of end play in the shaft and I see no way to take it out. With the gov. on the engine gravity is holding it down and making the gears meash but with the end play you can pull the shaft up about 1/4 inch. I did not take the gov. completely apart so I may be missing something here. Anyone know how this is supposed to work?

Got the Superior cranked and running ready for the 11th annual gas-up, come watch it run! Side by side with a 25 horse Fairbanks NB and a 35 horse Krueger Atlas in the background.

Still some maintenance to do on it after a slight water explosion, shortly after this video was taken.
