20. With the load limit screw backed all the way out,
retain the governor operating lever in the full-fuel
position. The governor terminal lever should touch the
boss in the governor housing (Fig. 7). Adjust the
vertical link so that all of the injector racks are in the
full-fuel position, then tighten the rod end lock nuts

on each cylinder head.
Adjust load limit
The load limit is set at the factory and further
adjustment should be unnecessary. However, if the
governor has had major repairs or the injector rack
control levers have been re-positioned, the load limit
screw should be re-adjusted.
With the injector rack control levers properly adjusted,
set the load limit as follows:

lock nut loosened, adjust the screw to obtain a distance

full-fuel position as shown in Fig. 7.

the valve completely and noting the number of turns
2. Turn the load limit adjusting screw until a
.020" space exists between the fuel rod collar and the
terminal lever. If the adjustment cannot be made with
a feeler gage, turn the load limit adjusting screw (with
the lock nut tight enough to eliminate slack in the
threads) inward until the injector racks just loosen on
the ball end of the control levers.
3. Release the governor operating lever and hold the
adjusting screw while tightening the lock nut. Then
install the governor cover and tighten the screws.
